[Correspondence] It’s time to consider pollution in NCD prevention – Authors’ reply

We appreciate the attention given by Andy Haines and Philip J Landrigan to the findings of The Lancet’s Taskforce on NCDs and economics and our Series paper.1 Haines and Landrigan emphasise our main findings that many premature NCD deaths will occur in low-income and middle-income countries by 2030, and that investments to manage NCDs cannot only reduce those premature deaths, but also provide economic gains and help achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, the authors feel we have missed the importance of the environment in our expression of where NCDs sit within the SDG constellation.
