It seeks to collect information on the risk factors for Non-Communicable Diseases such as Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Cancer, etc.
It will gather data on tobacco use, salt intake, obesity, physical activity and other risk factors.
This will be done by randomly selecting households.
The Ministry of Health has also received technical support from the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
