Risk factors of non-communicable diseases faced by people in India.
Non-communicable sicknesses (NCDs) are attaining epidemic proportions worldwide and in India. Surveillance of NCD hazard factors are therefore wanted as they might help in policy making plans and implementation of preventive measures.

The challenges in discipline operations consist of contacting and convincing subjects, developing rapport, monitoring topics, climatic conditions, do not forget potential and interviewer competencies. Achievement in surveillance research depends on waiting for and dealing with these challengesAuthor(s): Geraldine Halls*
