Maltreatment & Non-Communicable Disease (NCDs)
It is also documented that child maltreatment increases the odds by 49% for the development of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in adulthood, e.g. cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, chronic respiratory diseases, mental health problems and musculoskeletal conditions. (*)
