Abstract (Summary)

Obesity is one of the leading causes of several chronic diseases in both developing and developed countries and is a significant public health problem globally. In India, the rate of obesity is 4.7% as of 2014 census and is expected to rise due to food intake, lifestyle changes, limited physical exercise, and mental ailments. According to a study in the Lancet, approximately 20 million women (20%) and 10 million men (16%) in India are overweight in a population of 1.3 billion. It is important for adults to stay within the appropriate BMI by implementing necessary measures. As obesity is a risk factor associated with many diseases like hypertension, diabetes, coronary heart diseases, dyslipidemia and many types of cancers. As compared to white Caucasians obesity in Asian Indians can lead to adversity and morbidity at lower levels of BMI. Our organization, Better Health aims to control the rising rate of obesity amongst adults in India, particularly the financial facility of India, which is Mumbai. We will design interventions to prevent and manage obesity with a personalized care approach. This paper will include the justification of the need to establish the organization with various analysis such as marketing analysis, feasibility analysis, legal & regulatory analysis, and financial analysis.
