Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Prasad, the District Health Officer, said, “earlier in 2018, in the health survey conducted in the area around the health centre under the leadership of Dr. Ramya, the Medical
Officer of the Urban Primary Health Centre in Kumbarakoppal, it was found that more than 3,000 people in the age group of 30 years and above have non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and other diseases. As the medicines supplied by the Government to the patients suffering from these types of diseases are not available in sufficient quantity, Ashraya Hasta Trust was requested to supply the medicine. Considering our request, they have provided enough medicines for about 1000 patients for the next 6 months through Narayana Multispeciality Hospital in the City, whose service is admirable”.
Vishwanath Reddy, Portfolio Manager at Ashraya Hastha Trust expressed his gratitude towards the participants of the launch event. He said, “The best way to manage the non – communicable disease is through early detection, adhering to treatment and following a healthy lifestyle.”
