Side Effects After Drug Poisoning?
Good evening I want to ask whether drug poisoning is included in non-communicable diseases? If so, why?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Infectious diseases are diseases that are based on infectious conditions as the cause, where the infection can be sourced from bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa, or parasites because it can transmit to other people who are healthy. Outside these conditions, it is classified as a non-communicable disease because it cannot be transmitted to other healthy people. In non-communicable diseases, the highest cause of death from all causes of death is stroke, then hypertension, diabetes, cancer, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Associated with drug poisoning, which is generally caused by errors in taking the drug, be it the wrong dose, the wrong indication, or the wrong combination of drugs (not classified as an infectious disease) then automatically classified as a non-communicable disease.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam.
