Dear Colleagues,

Diabetes and Cardiovascular Diseases have severe economic impact on any country these days. Asian countries – especially Indo-China is currently considered as the capital of these specific non-communicable diseases. In one of their recent Global Reports on Urban Health, Ms. Marie-Paile Kieny (WHO Assistant Director-General for Health Systems and Innovations) and Ms. Jaon Clos (UN-Habitat Executive Director) estimate that during 2014 – 2050, China is expected to add another 292 million people to its cities and India will add another 404 million people to its cities. This finally translates to an expenditure of $ 27.8 trillion by China and $6.2 trillion by India between 2012 to 2030 for Non-Communicable diseases – predominantly for that of Diabetes and the Heart.

Dr. V. Mohan et al., have explored in detail about the various strategies to manage this ‘explosion of diabetes and heart disease in Indian cities’(J Diabetes Sci Technol 2010;4(1):158–170) and have concluded that there is a very urgent need for Diet and lifestyle modification among the urban people as well as establishment of a robust surveillance systems. This has severe morbidity and economic impact on both the family as well as the country, in the longer run.

In diabetes, the vascular endothelium rapidly loses its ability to promote vascular dilatation and regulate clot formation by secreting several mediators. Therefore, it directly results in abnormal functioning of the heart and the kidneys. Experts all over the world are seriously trying to understand and find an explanation about the molecular mechanisms involved in the endothelial function. Therefore, there is an urgent need to preserve and protect – especially the diabetic heart, thereby, reducing the cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. Prof. Sundaram Arulrhaj, because of his long and flourishing practice in Internal Medicine, has aptly recognized the burning issues that threaten the entire humanity.

Our Organising Chairman Dr. D. Selvaraj, myself and our team, we wish to congratulate and admire the far-sightedness of Prof. Sundaram Arul Rhaj for providing a platform for the experts all over the world to converge and explore their ideas of managing the Cardiodiabetic Challenge of the Decade. Moreover, we are also thankful to him for choosing Chennai – the Cultural and Intellectual Capital of India, for hosting this historic event. We also this opportunity to welcome everyone from all over the Globe to actively participate and contribute for the better understanding of this challenge of Cardiodiabetology, world is currently facing.

Awaiting to receive you all at Chennai, India
