WHY SHOULD I DO THE APHC
The best way to prevent disease is to detect them early, which can be done only by regular health checks.
The global burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as Cardiovascular Diseases, Diabetes Mellitus, Cancer etc has risen at a rapid pace, and currently over 36 million people worldwide lose their lives to them annually. India alone, unfortunately, accounts for 17% of these deaths related to NCDs. People living in urban areas are more exposed to NCDs due to an unhealthy lifestyle, physical inactivity, and use of alcohol and tobacco products. A majority of the NCDs, which are lifestyle related, are preventable if detected in their early stages of insidious development and/or are controllable if not curable in some cases.
Health checks help you find out if you are suffering from a particular disease or condition even if you feel perfectly well, without any symptoms. Early detection and appropriate management can result in better outcomes and lower risk of serious complications.
