In 2013, with Nokia, we completed mDiabetes, our ground-breaking 1 million-person mHealth diabetes prevention program in India, fulfilling our 2011 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Commitment. We thank Nokia and our other partners – Emory, Aetna, Johnson & Johnson, Biocon. We also thank all of our supporters, at Global Giving and elsewhere, without whom this work would have been impossible. 

mDiabetes won a 2013 mBillionth Award, was a finalist at the Vodafone Mobile4Good Award, and was represented by an abstract and poster presentation at World Diabetes Congress in December 2013. And our video was shown at the 2013 CGI Annual Meeting.
65 million Indians are currently living with diabetes which may lead to heart disease, blindness and death when unmanaged. Our award-winning 'pilot' program sent 1 million Indians 56 text messages over 6 months promoting exercise and healthy eating--behaviors known to impact diabetes. Results show 8-15% increases in healthy behavior!
 
In 2014, we’re working to take this award-winning program to the next 1 million Indians.
