Enabling access to healthcare for the underserved



Two out of every three Indians die of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) such as diabetes, heart disorder and cancer.

To reduce this burden, the Indian government established NCD cells across the country, where people can receive counseling that supports a lifestyle change. For a program of this magnitude to be truly effective, active participation from private sectors and civil society is essential.

Thus came a Public Private Partnership between Sanofi India and the Government of Maharashtra in 2014.

We extended our expertise in Patient Support Program to train & equip doctors, nurses and counselors at the NCD cells across Maharashtra. Additionally, we created awareness about preventing NCDs amongst the local population through posters and hoardings in State hospitals.

“I received training on Non-Communicable Diseases - hypertension, diabetes and cancer. The training helped us learn how to help patients control and avoid long-term effects of hypertension, counsel patients on modifying their diet and managing their diabetes, do an early detection of oral and breast cancers, and do further management.”
