The rates of cancer and other chronic non-communicable diseases in Kuwait are at an “alarming” level, local media reported quoting a health ministry official.

The ministry is currently involved in the creation of a national database, which identifies domestic cancer figures, and plans to continue conducting a national survey of the disease’s rates in the country, report added.

The ministry is enlisting the help of global organisations in order to carry out these endeavours, undersecretary for private sector affairs Mohammad Al-Khashti told a cancer conference attended by several international experts.

Cancer along with other non-communicable diseases like heart disease, diabetes and respiratory ailments represent priorities for the country, he said.
