The Times of India reported that India is planning to roll out the world’s largest non-communicable diseases drive. As many as 26 “mini interventions” will make up the world’s largest programme to combat non communicable diseases ( NCDs) that will be launched by India soon.

However , as usual the government seems to be barking up the wrong tree by pumping in money to open more healthcare centers and do more testing.

The Times of India reported that India is planning to roll out the world’s largest non-communicable diseases drive. As many as 26 “mini interventions” will make up the world’s largest programme to combat non communicable diseases ( NCDs) that will be launched by India soon.

However , as usual the government seems to be barking up the wrong tree by pumping in money to open more healthcare centers and do more testing.

The only way long-term cost-effective sustainable solution to tackling this huge problem is by providing Information Therapy to Indians, so they can prevent these problems, most of which are related to an unhealthy lifestyle.

This is why HELP is organising its 2nd Annual Conference on Using Information Therapy to Put Patients First in India.

This will be held at Nehru Centre on Sunday, 9th October’11 . Mr.Ken Long , Vice President, International Operations at Healthwise, U.S.A, will be the keynote speaker and he will be talking on “What Healthwise is doing in the US to Promote Information Therapy – what we’ve learned so far”.

On this occasion, we will be releasing a book titled, Using Information Therapy to Put Patients First.
