GWI Expands Partnerships to China, India, Israel

 

The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) has released details of new, strategic partnerships in China, India and Israel. The new international alliances were formed to raise awareness of  The Wellness Moonshot: A World Free of Preventable Disease in more countries this year.

The nonprofit organization’s mission is to empower wellness worldwide by educating the public and private sectors about preventative health and wellness.

The GWI partnered with China’s Tianren Culture, a next-generation social platform that supports social enterprises; India’s Smart Group, which was responsible for introducing mobile phones and electric cars to the country and sees wellness and prevention as central to India’s future; and Israel’s Welltech1, an innovation hub and micro-fund investing in wellness start-ups with a focus on making people healthier and happier.

Lifestyle-related disease and the skyrocketing cost of healthcare have created a global crisis, according to Nancy Davis, GWI’s chief creative officer and executive director.

Davis pointed out that, “Roughly 70% of all deaths each year are a result of preventable diseases, while the global cost of preventable chronic disease is anticipated to reach $47 trillion by 2030. This is a crisis that the wellness industry is uniquely suited to positively impact, and it’s with immense pleasure and pride that we introduce our new international partners in the mission to fight preventable disease.”

Amir Alroy, co-founder of Welltech1, said, “It’s a privilege to bring the visionary Wellness Moonshot initiative to Israel. Chronic disease is the leading cause of death and disability in the world, including in Israel. It will be an honour to educate and share the valuable content created by the GWI.”

The GWI launched The Wellness Moonshot; a World Free of Preventable Disease in 2017 at the Global Wellness Summit.
