If effective, mDiabetes could be replicated in other countries, and evolve into a global solution to the NCD crisis. Developing countries, already burdened by the scourge of infectious diseases and maternal mortality, are finding it hard to grapple with the growing burden of NCDs, and would likely find such an approach affordable and easy to adopt.
The Political Declaration on NCDs adopted unanimously at the UN Summit in September 2011 by all countries, asked for a "whole of society" approach to tackle NCDs, one of the greatest health and development challenges of the century.
We at Arogya World agree -- NCDs are our collective responsibility to fix. mDiabetes and the rest of our work, including our global advocacy for NCD prevention, are this one NGO's response to that call to action.
