Preetha Reddy, Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Invited to United Nations Summit on NCDs
Date:9/20/2011

NEW YORK, September 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Preetha Reddy, Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals, was invited to attend the United Nations Summit at New York held by the UN General Assembly for the prevention and control of Non-Communicable Diseases.

Non-communicable diseases, such as heart attacks and strokes, cancers, diabetes and chronic respiratory disease, account for more than 63 percent of all deaths worldwide, killing 36 million people a year. The two-day meeting on non-communicable diseases marked the second health topic that the U.N. General Assembly has ever taken up. The deliberations are towards saving millions of lives and to stem a proliferation of chronic diseases that could cost the global economy trillions of dollars if left unchecked.

Sharing her insights on NCDs, Preetha Reddy, Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals, said, "Our nation needs to put in place a robust national protection programme against NCDs and this is needs to be done on top priority. As pointed out by research, over 60% of the deaths in India are due to NCDs and it is vital that our country provides adequate services to those affected by these diseases and also takes strong steps to encourage prevention of the diseases. The modern lifestyle has catalyzed a rapid surge of NCDs and this also has an economic bearing as a 10% rise in NCDs is associated with 1% lower rate on annual economic growth."

"We need holistic solutions to tackle non communicable diseases," added Preetha Reddy.
