Disturbing Scenario in India

1. 17.3 million or 30% of total global deaths occur because of cardiovascular diseases
2. In India FOUR people die of a Heart Attack every MINUTE
3. FIVE out of 100 Indians carry a gene mutation that almost guarantees the development of Heart disease.
4. Diabetes kills TWO Indians while stroke and cancer kills ONE each every MINUTE
5. In 2008, more than 35% Indians who died of a heart attack, cancer or diabetes were in their productive years (age 35-60)
6. More than 61 Indians go below the poverty-line every MINUTE by spending on treatment to diseases already occurred
7. For every 1000 Indians there is less than ONE hospital bed, less than ONE doctor and less than ONE nurse
8. WHO indicates that at least 80% of premature deaths from cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes?
9. Interestingly, 40% of cancers are preventable if a healthy lifestyle is maintained and/or the conditions leading to the disease are DETECTED EARLY!
When you are sick, you have no choice but to think about your health; it’s right there in your face – you feel awful. Preventive health care must be planned and executed ahead of time, even when illness is absent. You must build healthy habits even when it’s not convenient. You must believe that maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important enough to make a few sacrifices. Eating right, getting exercise and avoiding destructive substances like tobacco, alcohol and excessive amounts of sugar and salt are crucial, as is getting enough sleep each night. Healthy habits are an “automatic” defense against most illnesses and can provide us a long, healthy – and thus happy – life.

TEN STEPS TO MAKE INDIA A HEALTHY NATION

1.Government needs to create disincentives on unhealthy products and create awareness of costs and the impact of non-compliant behaviour
2.Politicians should exhibit the courage to systemically transform businesses that lead to ill health.
3.Education systems should integrate health as an integral part of the curriculum.
4.Workplace organizations should highlight workplace wellness initiatives and provide a supportive environment for creating a wellness culture.
5.Healthcare organizations need to focus on preventive care and explore new delivery models.
6.Medical equipment manufacturers need to reduce costs by emphasizing value-consciousness and focusing on mass diagnosis and treatment.
7.Information technology should be selected when it is appropriate, not only because it is new. All involved need to harness the potential of digital channels to increase reach and improve health monitoring.
8.Innovation for mass use should be balanced with expensive high-end innovation.
9.Food and beverage producers need to recognize their role in creating a healthy nation.
10.NGOs should help to bridge the gap between government and industry and build multi-stakeholder consensus.
