Unfortunately, this strategic importance is usually seen or taken casually in favour of other broader issues concerning health care (Egger, 2012; Tulchinsky & Varavikova, 2010). The prevention of auxiliary complications associated with many chronic diseases like diabetes and obesity can be easily done by using the readily available medical interventions. On the contrary, many of people suffering from diabetes or even high blood pressure do not have the underlying conditions adequately controlled. It follows then that monitoring and promotion of treatment of all chronic diseases should be done within local heath care systems. It has been shown that the control methods of disease outbreaks are not adequately utilized with regards to treatment and prevention of chronic diseases (Engel, 2010). The new modern and comprehensive approach to prevention and treatment of chronic diseases is concerned with common risks that exacerbate the chronic diseases’ morbidity on global a global scale. Prevention of chronic diseases is predicated upon adoption of the correct intervention measures which act on the main risk factors of the chronic diseases in question. For this to happen, it has to be visualized within public health policies which are essentially governmental as well as non-governmental organizations interventions that target environmental and behavioural change (Schaller & Sandu, 2011). These changes are geared towards promotion of healthy living behaviours and lifestyles that lead to the prevention
of chronic diseases. The improved prevention public health strategies have led to societal benefits such as reduction of costs in health care systems and productivity increment in people. On the other hand,...
The paper describes some chronic diseases have evolved over the years to become a public menace and accounts for many deaths worldwide. Many public health agendas usually do not take into consideration or articulate the serious challenges brought by chronic diseases especially in the developing world. The morbidity of chronic diseases especially the ones associated with sedentary lifestyles has been on a steady increase especially in the developed world.

In the paper we can find out due to the increase of its morbidity and the high prevalence rate, more public health specialists are needed so that they can help in the study and control of these diseases. The modern clinical approaches in the treatment and prevention of chronic diseases are currently overwhelmed by enormous amount of research that is needed. However, clinical approaches to the treatment and prevention of diseases such as diabetes have led to better outcomes than previously thought. International health organizations such as WHO are also helping in furthering the efforts of modern public health by expanding the scope of public health focus with regards to chronic diseases.
