Non-communicable disease is a medical condition or disease that is by definition non-infectious and non-transmissible among people. Currently, NCDs are the leading causes of death and disease burden worldwide. NCD usually attack elderly or more can we say that is only realized when people come to a certain age. To prevent this from happening, a solution has been proposed to start the awareness as early as possible. The proposed solution is to implement the awareness program thru Physical Education (PE) subject in both primary and secondary school. This proposed framework will have four main modules, Students Health Management System, Health and Fitness Apps, Health Education through Blended Learning and Fitness Training. This framework will involve minimum of three users, the PE teacher, students and parents. The data contains in this framework will be stored using cloud storage technology to ease the access from all side. The main objective of this proposed solution is to enforce the healthy lifestyle in the students and hopefully can reduce the chances of NCD.
