[Viewpoint] A developmental approach to the prevention of hypertension and kidney disease: a report from the Low Birth Weight and Nephron Number Working Group

In 2008, the World Health Assembly endorsed WHO’s Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) 2013–2020,1 based on the realisation that NCDs cause more deaths worldwide than do communicable diseases. This plan strongly advocates prevention as the most effective strategy to curb NCDs. Furthermore, the life-course approach, which was highlighted in the Minsk Declaration,2 reflects increasing recognition that early development affects later-life health and disease.
