What inspires us?
NanoHealth is solving one of the largest health problems of the 21 st century– Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) that account for highest deaths and disability across the world. NCDs cause 2 out of 3 deaths worldwide. The 2015 Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) Global Survey showed that 1 in 4 Indians face the risk of death from an NCD before they hit the age of 70. In addition to causing premature deaths, NCDs also impede the quality of life of people. NCDs are a threat not only to human health, but also to economic development and growth. NCDs account for an annual loss of 5-10% of GDP in India, leading to a crippling effect on the individual and the economy.
Current health care systems, both in the public and private sectors, are heavily oriented towards reactive care and episodic treatment. There is less emphasis on preventive, primary and continuous care that is required to manage long term clinical and behavioral modifications necessary to manage chronic conditions and reduce long term health costs for individuals and health systems. NanoHealth has taken on this challenge of building a solution to tackle NCDs at scale.
NanoHealth made history by becoming the first Indian team to win the Hult Prize 2014 out of 11,000 applicants worldwide. NanoHealth continues to be supported and inspired by the pursuits of the Hult Foundation in building pockets of excellence across the world to solve critical challenges. Since 2014 NanoHealth has grown diversely.
How far we have come...
Pioneered a Proactive & Continuous Care model with the right blend of human touch and technology to fight NCDs. NanoHealth has touched over 70,000 people across various walks of life and caused deep impact in improving their health and ultimately their quality of life.
More recently, our impact has been recognised by the government, giving NanoHealth the opportunity to expand its solution to a much larger scale and to under-served people and geographies.
After three years of continuous efforts to develop a NCD focused solution, we are now confident to have developed an effective and scalable solution that can help millions of people manage their health better and save hundreds of thousands from premature death! I want to thank all my team members, all our partners and specially Hult Prize for their continuous faith and support.
