We’re combatting one of the largest and most pervasive non-communicable diseases in the developing world: Type II diabetes. Due to a lack of education and non-existent access to affordable care, diabetes affects those living in resource-poor areas disproportionately. An estimated 75 million resource-poor citizens around the globe suffer from this disease, living without the ability to affordably monitor and control their condition, a number that will increase to 300 million by the end of the decade. In India alone, it is attributable to more than $30 million in lost direct economic productivity and 25,000 preventable hospital visits per year. Affordable monitoring through the REACH system has the potential to give tens of millions of the world’s most economically disadvantaged citizens the first chance they have ever had at managing their diabetes and regaining control over their lives....

REACH Diagnostics is run by a strong team and I have full confidence in their ability to execute on the big projects they are working on. I hope to see them continue succeeding in their mission on providing inexpensive disease screening tools for those who need it most!
