In Ethiopia, noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) represent 18.3% of premature mortality, consume 23% of the household expenditures, and cost 1.8% of the gross domestic product. Risk factors such as alcohol, khat, and cannabis use are on the rise and are correlated with a substantial portion of NCDs. Associated NCDs include depression, anxiety, hypertension, coronary heart disease, and myocardial infarction.
