Health has always been a critical issue for the developing nations and India is no exception. As a matter of fact, it is not easy to fulfil the daily health requirements of 1.32 billion people. Various government initiatives and programs have improved India’s statistics in life expectancy at birth and communicable disease. However, the burden of non-communicable disease is on the rise. According to the World Health Organization, in India, almost 61% of deaths are caused by non-communicable diseases. * Shortage of qualified doctors and hospital beds has worsened the problem.
