Mapping the burden of diabetes
All you need is a smartphone and a little piece of paper to have a game-changing impact on diabetes. Approximately 1.5 to 2 billion people in the world suffer from diabetes, pre-diabetes, or a complication associated with it, and yet more than 90% of them never even get tested. To combat this challenge, Professor Tarun Khanna developed a simple diagnostic device that works with any smartphone in the world. The result is a game-changing innovation that is reshaping the state of diabetes testing, treatment, and data analysis around the globe.
Tarun is the Jorge Paulo Lemann Professor at Harvard Business School and director of Harvard’s South Asia Institute (SAI).
