Free Awareness Camp and Screening on Non - Communicable Diseases
Non - Communicable Disease ???
A non-communicable disease (NCD) is a medical condition or disease that is not caused by infectious agents (non-infectious or non-transmissible). NCDs can refer to chronic diseases which last for long periods of time and progress slowly. Sometimes, NCDs result in rapid deaths such as seen in certain diseases such as autoimmune diseases, heart diseases, stroke, cancers, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, cataracts, and others. While sometimes referred to as synonymous with "chronic diseases", NCDs are distinguished only by their non-infectious cause, not necessarily by their duration, though Some chronic diseases of long duration, such as HIV/AIDS, may caused by infections. Chronic diseases require chronic care management as do all diseases that are slow to develop and of long duration.
A team of 10 doctors from Apollo came to our campus and Free screening was conducted for almost 1000 students.
