Welcome to Arogya World

Arogya World is a global health non-profit organization working mainly in India to prevent NCDs, non-communicable diseases, through health education and lifestyle change. We engage with health leaders as well as individuals to help people around the world lead healthier lives. Our mission is reflected in our very name – Arogya in Sanskrit means to live a life without disease.

NCDs, which include diabetes, heart disease, cancer and chronic lung diseases, are among the biggest health and development challenges of the century. Today, 7 out of 10 deaths are due to NCDs and 80% of the deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.

According to the WHO, eating a healthy diet, increasing physical activity and avoiding tobacco use can prevent:

  • 80% of premature heart disease
  • 80% of type 2 diabetes cases, and
  • 40% of cancers

Prevention is at the core of our work. India is a major area of focus for our work.
