ABSTRACT

It has been known that chronic diseases (CDs) take a very long time and its progression is always low for any health system. Financial and organizational problems are considered to be a tremendous burden on the health system. Patients who have numerous CDs, such as depression, have their functional capacity decreased, and they need greater health care. We used an online searching process to obtain scientific articles related to our subject. We obtained 26 articles related to the current subject; of them, 19 were excluded as they were duplicate articles, published before 2000 or not focusing on the current subject. Hence, only seven articles were included, which were published between 2005 and 2019. Articles were selected according to the inclusion criteria that we selected, and then, the discussion of the subject was performed under main titles. The study concludes that the prevention of CD is very important for the development of the economy. CD management is a challenge for healthcare providers. It is very important to enhance management's quality of CDs for patients by providing better treatment in primary care settings, in addition to self-supportive management for the patient.
