Non communicable diseases (NCDs) contribute to around 5.87 million deaths that account for 60 % of all deaths in India. India shares more than two-third of the total deaths due to NCDs in the South-East Asia Region (SEAR) of WHO. The NCD burden in India will significantly worsen in the future: NCDs are more common among older populations; it is estimated that the people with diabetes will increase from 69.2 million in 2015 to 123.5 million by 2040. NCDs are not only associated with high mortality and lifelong morbidity but also have got a high economic implication. It is estimated that India will lose 4.5 trillion USD (2010 dollar) between 2012 and 2030 due to NCDs.
We design and implement integrated care model to address the growing burden of NCDs. Our specific focus is to strengthen care continuum for NCDs by establishing the link between screening, preventive and the curative aspect under the ambit of urban primary health care systems. We implement, test and refine implementation models through embedded formative research and rigorous monitoring and evaluation methods. Our intervention model encompass community, facility and health systems interfaces. One of the other strengths of our intervention models is use of strong public-private partnership strategy. In order to have last mile health delivery model to reach out to rural and remote population and delivering technology enabled health care services at door step with minimal cost, we are also testing the feasibility of a health entrepreneur model in improving access to health care.
