3BLMedia/ Corporate Social Responsibility/ Disease - In India, 61 million people have diabetes. By 2030, that number is expected to drastically increase, with more than 100 million Indians likely to develop the disease. In fact, the International Diabetes Federation estimates that 9.2 percent of adults in India have diabetes, making its prevalence second to that in China.

Responding to the country’s growing epidemic, Lilly India, in partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and Ministry of Health, hosted the inaugural National Non-Communicable Disease Summit last week in New Delhi.

Vice President for Asia Operations Jannie Oosthuizen and Managing Director of Lilly India Melt Van Der Spuy discuss the conference and first-of-their-kind initiatives taking place in the region.
