HIV effects not only the person with HIV but also their family
- India is currently ranked #1 in the world in terms of Type II Diabetes, with an estimated 50.8 million affected.
- This is predicted to increase in developing countries. In the state of Karnataka, overall prevalence is estimated to be approximately 16%. This is a particularly severe issue among people in the high socioeconomic strata, with over 32% estimated to be affected by the disease.
- If left unchecked, the prevalence of diabetes will no doubt increase and impose an even greater burden on society.
