Non-communicable disease is the chronic condition that does not result from an (acute) infectious process and hence are non-transmissible or not communicable. The rise of non-communicable diseases among young adults has substantially increased over the past ten years. Therefore, the study examined prevention and control of non-communicable diseases: a call for joint action. Specifically, the study examined risk factors of non-communicable diseases, prevention of non-communicable diseases, and control of non-communicable diseases. It was revealed that many people indulge in practices which make them prone to NCDs. Why people indulge in such behaviour is not clear and has been a focus of criticism. It was confirmed by previous researchers that in order to prevent NCDs a change in health practice is needed. For practice to be modified there might be the need for the influence of another individual on the one whose behaviour is to be modified.
