To the Editor We agree with Dr Yach and Mr Calitz1 in their Viewpoint on the changing landscape of prevention of noncommunicable diseases that increased and more targeted research on prevention, adequate infrastructure at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), public-private partnerships, and use of up-to-date health technology tools are needed. In addition, we would like to add another perspective.
