2012 has been an exciting year for Arogya World and the NCD community. We are pleased that the world is waking up to the enormous threat that non-communicable diseases, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes and chronic lung diseases pose to global health and development, and we are energized by the progress made. The world took a giant step forward in 2012 – countries committed to a 25% mortality reduction by 2025, and 8 other measurable goals and 25 indicators. It is exciting to watch this progress unfold on the world stage.
