6. Non-Communicable Diseases
We use a continuum of care approach to prevent and better manage NCDs like obesity, diabetes, hypertension, cancers, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases.
India’s burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) is ever-increasing. NCD contributed to an estimated 60% of the deaths in India in the year 2014. The probability of an Indian in the age group of 30-70 years dying at present from the four main NCDs – diabetes, cancer, stroke, and respiratory problems is 26% (WHO Non- Communicable Diseases Country Profiles, 2014).
In response, India has launched a National Program for Prevention and Control of Cancer, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases, and Stroke (NPCDCS, 2016). GCFORCB Organisation works with the Government, NGOs, INGOs, CSR, Institutions, and Universities to help strengthen the health system to tackle the burden of NCDs.
7. Infectious Diseases
One way of broadly classifying human diseases is according to
whether they are “infectious (communicable)” or else, “non –
communicable”. Out of these two, infectious diseases account
for lion’s share of death, ill-health, and suffering in
developing countries. For this reason, an epidemiologist must
have a sound understanding of the epidemiologic principles
concerning infectious disease practice.
8. Environmental Health
Environmental health is the major burden of public health in India, needs to focus on the relationships between people and their environment; promotes human health and well-being; and fosters healthy and safe communities. Environmental health is a key part of any comprehensive public health system.
We focus on
- Climate Change
- Environmental Public Health Tracking
- Empowering Environmental Health Professionals
- Healthy Community Design
- Understanding Environmental Health and Partnership to promote environmental health
Growing up in a clean and safe environment is every child’s right. Access to clean water, basic toilets, and good hygiene practices not only keeps children thriving but also gives them a healthier start in life.
WASH services require strong national policies, financial systems, and monitoring in order to be sustainable, resilient, and accountable. But in many countries, institutional structures remain fragile.

Improving the maternal and child health and their survival are central to the achievement of national health goals under the National Health Mission (NHM). SDG Goal 3 also includes the focus on reducing maternal, newborn, and child mortality. In the past years, innovative strategies evolved under the national program to deliver evidence-based interventions to various population groups.
The RMNCH+A strategy is built upon the continuum of care concept and is holistic in design, encompassing all interventions aimed at reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health under a broad umbrella, and focusing on the strategic lifecycle approach.
The RMNCH+A strategy promotes links between various interventions across thematic areas to enhance coverage throughout the lifecycle to improve child survival in India.
The “GCFORCB” within the strategy focuses on:
- Inclusion of adolescence as a distinct life stage within the overall strategy.
- Linking maternal and child health to reproductive health and other components like family planning, adolescent health, HIV, gender, preconception, and prenatal diagnostic techniques.
- Linking home and community-based services to facility-based services.
- Ensuring linkages, referrals, and counter-referrals between and among various levels of the health care system to create a continuous care pathway, and to bring an additive /synergistic effect in terms of overall outcomes and impact.
