The prevention and care of chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs), like Diabetes, Hypertension, Heart disease, Obesity and Anemia is generally overlooked in the medically underserved areas according to the World Health Organizations (WHO).
Our work focuses on three things:
An important part of our organization is the dedicated work of local volunteers. With an in-depth understanding of the need of their neighbors, the health volunteers advance disease prevention and management and provide vital peer support to patients with or at risk of developing NCDs
Our volunteers have helped many local people with education campaigns, screening and care of NCDs. We provide blood test, monitor blood pressure, sugar level and hemoglobin as well as body mass index. We educate people about sugar and salt intakes, smoking cessation and the importance of exercises and daily routine. This project has a big impact in the community. People are now aware of the diseases and are informed on how to control them.
Dr. Lok Shandilya is a medical professional and is the Founder and President of GHE. After retiring from active medical practice, Dr. Shandilya has rejuvenated his mission to educate and bring awareness regarding health-related issues, prevention and self-management of chronic diseases among indigent patient population who do not have easy access to medical care in the United States and in rural India. In addition to Dr. Shandilya, GHE Volunteers provide invaluable services during Free Health Screening Camps and also in the Free Health and Wellness Clinic.
