Of Ugandans who die of cancer, 96% never see a medical practitioner. The country's health-care system was designed to treat infectious diseases. Non-communicable diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart and respiratory ailments have not been priorities. Affluence and urbanisation mean new kinds of unhealthy lifestyles. Developing countries already bear more than 80% of the burden of chronic illnesses. Their share will grow--at a time when older diseases are still ravaging the poor. The World Health Organisation expects deaths from non-communicable diseases to rise by 15% between 2010 and 2020, with jumps of over 20% in Africa and South-East Asia. The countries concerned are woefully unprepared. Their health-care systems are designed for acute problems, not least because that is what foreign donors pay for.
