The Temples Project
Hypertension and diabetes are leading causes of death and disability in India today.
Due to the silent nature of these conditions, many patients are under-diagnosed and under-treated, leading to heart attacks, stroke and kidney failure.
In order to change this scenario, makeadent.org has teamed up with SEHAT (Society for Enhanced Health and Access to Treatments) to start providing screening, education and monitoring services to patients in a temple setting, so that more patients in the community can have their hypertension and diabetes appropriately treated.
This way, we can reduce the burden of avoidable death and suffering in our society.
