Commitment to Action

10,000 Women's Voices Help the Fight Against NCDs

Commitment by

Arogya World

In 2013, Arogya World committed to perform a quantitative survey of 10,000 women from ten countries in both the developed and developing world, to gather their unique perspectives on the impact of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) on women's lives. NCDs are the number one cause of death amongst women, killing 18 million women each year, yet their concerns and specific needs are not being addressed by the global community. Using the latest technologies, Arogya World aims to capture women's health concerns to establish NCDs as a women's issue and build broad-based evidence to inform future action. By highlighting how NCDs cut across cultures and affect families everywhere, the survey will put a human face on NCDs and use the voices of women to move policymakers to action.
