New Delhi [India], November 17: India is grappling with a diabetes epidemic, with over 101 million diabetic and 136 million prediabetic individuals in 2023, as reported by the Indian Council of Medical Research.
Flipkart Health+, the digital healthcare marketplace platform of India's homegrown Flipkart Group, has come up with a groundbreaking initiative, "Diabetes Free Days," aimed at raising awareness about diabetes management and medication.
A Sweet Celebration Of Resilience
This World Diabetes Day, Flipkart Health+ is celebrating the resilience and self-discipline of individuals managing diabetes. The campaign designed in collaboration with Lowe Lintas features 'Gulab Jamun Uncle,' who, despite his love for sweets, chooses to say 'No Thanks' to mithai in support of those with diabetes: "Why is 'Gulab Jamun Uncle' saying 'No Thanks' to mithai?"
With the rise of sugar levels during the festive season, Flipkart Health+ is celebrating those individuals who have consistently maintained strict dietary guidelines by providing a 27% discount on Diabetes medicines & essentials.
Educational Empowerment And Health Camps
From November 14 to 18, 2023, Flipkart Health+ is conducting a series of educational sessions featuring India's leading diabetologists and endocrinologists. These sessions will cover crucial aspects of diabetes prevention and management, providing valuable insights for individuals across the nation.
In a pioneering move, Flipkart Health+ has partnered with Lupin Diagnostics to organize free health camps at HealthBuddies stores, Flipkart Health+'s seller partners. These camps offer customers the opportunity to undergo essential diagnostic tests such as CBC, Fasting/Normal Blood Sugar, Cholesterol, and TSH for a nominal cost.
Holistic Approach To Diabetes Care
This Diabetes Free Days, Flipkart Health+ is bringing best-in-class discounts on a wide range of diabetes medicines and essentials. Customers across India, especially in tier-2 and tier-3 cities, can avail these offers in the comfort of their homes.
In addition, Flipkart Health+ partnered with Sugar Free and Balaram Mullick Sweets to deliver festive sweets made using Sugar Free Green Stevia as a token of appreciation for the resilience of their customers with diabetes in Kolkata.
"At Flipkart Health+, our endeavor is to aid every Indian in preventing and managing chronic diseases by driving awareness and providing support. Our mission is to improve the health of millions of Indians through affordable, health-oriented, and innovative solutions.
