The STEPs survey 2019 clearly indicates that there has not been much change in health of the Bhutanese population. Moreover coming to the salt intake there hasn’t been much change which indicates that the Bhutanese population is more prone to falling victims to diseases such as High Blood Pressure (Hypertension). Similarly other non-communicable diseases are on the rise and will affect us more if we do not be cautious today.
