The Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa today said the buying power and lack of regular exercise by many professionals are the two main reasons the country is among the countries with the high burden of non-communicable diseases. 

Denosa said this threatens the potential of the country’s socio-economic growth. 

Denosa’s Communications Manager Sibongiseni Delihlazo said with South Africa’s economic status improving gradually, this brings with it various problems, which are witnesses at the country’s health department outpatient outlets.

“Most people at many hospitals are there to collect medication for non-communicable diseases treatment, but regular exercise would solve this bigger problem that has besieged the country” Delihlazo added.
