By 2030, India's diabetes population will reach 79 mn

Jammu: More than 20 million Indians across 100 remote and inaccessible districts and in 33 cities with more than a million population will be screened for diabetes and cancer, Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said Saturday.

"In all, more than 20 crore (20 million) people would be screened in the next 14 months. This is going to be the largest-ever exercise undertaken in the world so far," Azad announced at an interaction at the Jammu Press Club.

"This pilot project will be completed in next 14 months," he said, adding this was being done as India was emerging as "a hub of cancer and diabetes" in the world.
