India is at the forefront of initiatives that seek to prevent non-communicable diseases and further wellness, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday.

His remarks came in response to the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) commending India’s progress to reduce pre-mature mortality from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and seeking cooperation with the Indian government to promote lessons learned from implementation of the National Multisectoral Action Plan for prevention and control of common NCDs.

“India is at the forefront of initiatives that seek to prevent non-communicable diseases and further wellness,” Modi tweeted.

“Grateful to @UNITAR for their kind words. Together, we all have to make our planet healthier,” he said and tagged Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi’s tweet on UNITAR commending India’s remarkable progress to reduce pre-mature mortality from NCDs.
