What a year! Many thanks to all who have helped us achieve so much in 2014 to help prevent non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and chronic respiratory diseases.
We spent more time on impact measurement this year. We believe we have helped more than 150,000 people lead healthier lives in India —gaining us recognition from the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), which highlighted Arogya World in their 10-year commemorative brochure and the Drucker Institute, which named us as a finalist for the Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation.
We made great strides in mDiabetes. Analysis of data from our mDiabetes initiative revealed that at least 15 percent of the text message recipients in India adopted or maintained four healthy behaviors simultaneously: they reported they exercised regularly, ate 2-3 fruits/day, ate 2-3 servings of vegetables/day, and avoided fried food. In 2014, Arogya World also won its largest ever grant to date: $260,000 from Cigna Foundation for our mHealth2.0 program. We are fortunate and grateful to have such a great partner—one that extends support far beyond the financial. We have already begun work on the mHealth lifestyle intervention program with partners Emory University, Vignet, and Madras Diabetes Research Foundation.
