This chapter is organized into five parts. Public health experts contribute a series of country case studies about social change and chronic diseases in five rapidly-emerging economies: Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and South Africa. These countries were chosen because they have undergone very rapid transformations to their ways of life in the past decade. Each is set to become a world power. Their economies have been growing at record pace. Yet, each shares a common threat of rising chronic diseases that risks the stability and sustainability of their development.

Keywords:   chronic diseases, social change, public health, country case studies, emerging economics
