Arogya World

Arogya World is a U.S. based non-profit organization committed to changing the course of chronic disease, one community at a time. The name of the organization is simply an articulation of our mission: Arogya in Sanskrit means good health. More literally it means to live a life without disease. Globally, we shine a spotlight on NCDs,non-communicable diseases, and advocate for disease prevention. Serving as a catalyst, our "small but mighty" organization is helping to mobilize world leaders and the public at large, including women, to ignite action against NCDs. In India, we focus our efforts on diabetes prevention through life-style changes in schools, workplaces and the community...

It is estimated that 61.3 million people aged 20-79 years live with diabetes in India (2011 estimates). This number is expected to increase to 101.2 million by 2030. Behavior change--getting people to exercise and improve their diets--is the prime challenge in diabetes prevention. To be effective, we must reach young children before their lifestyle habits are fully established. We are committed to reaching 10,000 children with our two-year diabetes prevention program by 2019. project reportread updates from the field

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are the #1 killer of women, taking 18 million women's lives each year. Still, data on women's views on NCDs are scarce. In early 2014, we surveyed 10,000 women in 10 countries around the world about the impact of NCDs (such as diabetes and cancer) on their lives. The insights and findings of this survey, if shared effectively, can persuade governments around the world to invest in the prevention and treatment of NCDs, protecting women and their families. project reportread updates from the field
