This report focuses on non-communicable chronic diseases, their risk factors, and the preventive measures applied in Argentina. In particular, three goals are pursued: (1) to analyze the characteristics and determinants of chronic diseases and their risk factors, (2) to identify, at a theoretical level, what are the cost-effective primary and secondary prevention measures, and (3) to assess current levels of coverage of such strategies in Argentina. We employ the Encuesta Nacional de Factores de Riesgo 2005 and official vital records, as the main sources of information. Resumen Este trabajo se concentra en las enfermedades crónicas no transmisibles (EC), sus factores de riesgo evitables (FR) y las medidas preventivas que se aplican en la Argentina. En particular se persiguen tres objetivos: (1) analizar las características y determinantes de las EC y sus FR, (2) identificar a nivel teórico cuáles son las estrategias de prevención primaria y secundaria costo-efectivas, y (3) evaluar la cobertura de tales estrategias en el caso argentino. Como principales fuentes de información se emplean la Encuesta Nacional de Factores de Riesgo 2005 y los Registros de Estadísticas Vitales
