Share your story on how NCDs affect you...Join

Science knows about the correlation of cancer and alcohol use since the 1980s. The International Agency for Research in Cancer (IARC), the WHO’s research body, classifies alcohol as class one carcinogen since 1988.
“Indian society is losing more than it is gaining due to alcohol”
Alcohol can also significantly drain family budgets, since costs for NCD-related health care, medicines, and costs for alcohol diverts the household’s income and resources from ensuring food and nutrition security and from basic education.
the adverse physical and mental health, social, environmental and economic consequences of NCDs affect all, particularly the poor and vulnerable populations. Nada India has been working on prevention of NCDs with a focus on alcohol and tobacco use at primary and secondary levels by using treatment readiness, peer based approach and capacity building of peer led rehabilitation centers.

Nada India as a member of the Healthy India Alliance sees it as an opportunity to build partnerships for strengthening systems related to alcohol prevention, treatment and rehabilitation in India. 

NCDs affect millions of people in many different ways, from those living with cancers, heart and lung disease, and diabetes, to loved ones and health workers caring for those affected. Share your story on how NCDs affect you.
