Apollo Sugar Clinics and Lions Club India had taken up an ambitious initiative to screen one million people for Diabetes. Called “Together against Diabetes,” the initiative’s objective is to screen people with undetected diabetes.
This project had started from October 1st 2017 and has been going great guns with the generous cooperation of Apollo Hospitals Group and Lions Club India.
Though there had been heavy rains all over India, people had attended the screening camps in large numbers. This goes to prove the growing consciousness among Indians regarding their health and wellbeing.
Till date, we had screened 7513 people and 3438 are diabetic among them.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our team of executives and paramedical staff for their commitment to this grand cause.
As you all know that Diabetes Mellitus is a growing pandemic in India. Currently, there are more than 69.4 million people suffering with diabetes in our country. We are second only to China.
Considering the number of people who suffer from blindness, end-stage kidney disease, heart disease, and non-trauma related foot amputation, it is sad to note that diabetes is the main culprit.
In such circumstances, it is important to diagnose the disease condition early on, and provide aggressive intervention. Apollo Sugar Clinics has been spearheading this fight against diabetes with its unique lifestyle modification programs and holistic programs.
