Chronic diseases and injuries in Latin America and the Caribbean: Time for action

In an essay in PLoS Medicine, Pablo Perel and colleagues discuss the driving forces behind this epidemic of chronic disease and injury, and argue that lack of funding for health research in the region is hindering efforts to address the crisis.
