That’s Something We Can’t Live With

Arogya World is a global health non-profit organization working 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.

India is particularly hard hit by NCDs, diseases like diabetes, heart disease, cancer and chronic lung diseases, and is a major area of focus for us. Prevention is at the core of all our work. In 2020, our 10th year, we are aggressively scaling up our proven programs, and striving to educate 10 million people in India on diabetes prevention, helping hundreds of thousands measurably improve their health. Our work is aligned with the Government of India’s priorities and we believe we can help India – and the world – meet the Sustainable Development Goals, especially Goal #3 (health and well-being for all.)

Diabetes Isn't Inevitable. It's Preventable

Healthier Lifestyles Prevent NCDs

NCDs, which include diabetes and heart disease, are among the biggest health and development challenges of the century, and a big priority in India. Nearly 61% of deaths in India are now attributed to non-communicable diseases, including heart disorders, cancer and diabetes. Today, 7 out of 10 deaths are due to NCDs and 80% of the deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.

 

 

Our Doorstep Health Model

Arogya World follows a doorstep health model, which takes prevention to people where they live, learn and work. Our focus is scalable, science-based programs to reach a large population. These are deployed in schools, workplaces, and bringing information right to people’s phones. Our approach is gaining traction, and working! We have reached 5 million people so far, and our goal is to reach 22 million by 2022.
