Our costs of health care are very high but our quality is not improving enough. The Govt. is providing several services but additional simple interventions we help supplement our current efforts to improve the health parameters in the entire state. It is an excellent opportunity for CSR and NGO partners like KHPT to come forward, join hands with the government and share knowledge to put best scientific innovations to use so that people are healthy and happy in their homes”.
In his Chief Guest address, Dr. Rathan Kelkar spoke of India’s dismal performance in the area of health stating that India had the unique distinction of being No. 2 in diabetes in the world next to China and No. 1 in maximum number of deaths due to NCD in the world among populations below 60 years of age. In this context, he shared, “CSR and the Government working together is the need of the hour. We need to share our roles and responsibilities to be able to positively impact the indexes”
In his key note address, Dr. Denis Xavier NCDs presented on the Status of NCDs in India, the global mandate, the current research and the way forward. He suggested improvements in surveillance and monitoring, use of technology, strengthening role for community health workers and increasing awareness on risk factors and treatment for public as critical next steps.
