India accounts for 21% of the world’s global burden of disease. According to a World Health Organization 2012 report, though advances have been made in addressing communicable diseases, rapid changes in India’s society and lifestyles have led to the emergence of non-communicable diseases. A World Bank 2010 report informs that India is losing more than 6% of its GDP annually due to premature deaths and preventable illnesses.
