Every year, roughly 5.8 million Indians die from heart and lung diseases, stroke, cancer and diabetes. In other words, 1 in 4 Indians risks dying from an non-communicable disease (NCD) before they reach the age of 70. In line with WHO’s Global action plan for the prevention and control of NCDs 2013-2020, India is the first country to develop specific national targets and indicators aimed at reducing the number of global premature deaths from NCDs by 25% by 2025.

This NCD Summit in collaboration with CII and Eli Lilly India therefore comes at a very apt time and is trying its best to cater to the same by building up a consensus both at regional and national level where one can learn and share global and national best practices.
