Pooja Duggal, the Founder & CEO of HealthHunt on addressing Health Challenges Digitally

“The government of India launched National Health Policy last year with a goal to:

  1. Reduce maternal mortality rate.
  2. Decrease infant and child death rate from noncommunicable and infectious diseases.
  3. Bring down premature mortality due to cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases by 25%by 2025.

In the last year, we’ve been doing our share in solving all 3 of the above challenges…digitally.

With a vision aligned to the big Digital India campaign by the Indian government, we have been digitalizing health and wellness, making it accessible to lakhs of people through a simple tool called the healthwire.  61% of all deaths in India can be attributed to lifestyle diseases – which are mostly preventable and entirely avoidable when a timely intervention is made. Healthhunt was created precisely to be this intervention through the healthwire.  Today, we power some of Asia’s largest companies, schools, and colleges with verified, credible repository of curated information that enables each individual to take control of their health and wellbeing.”

About Pooja Duggal:

Pooja Sachin Duggal is a renowned Nutritionist and also one of the top five women in the global Diamond Industry, spearheading the entire Indian arm of the Rapaport Group when she decided to follow her one true passion- holistic living. Thus, healthhunt was born. Today, Pooja is a qualified health coach, an avid yogi, CEO of healthhunt, and a hands-on mother. Pooja is a passionate, driven woman, who gives any and everything her all – whether it be her work, or trying to get her friends to give up smoking. To that end, she then went on to study nutrition from Integrative Nutrition, the world’s largest school for nutrition in 2014.

Deciding to combine her strong background in business development and strategy with her true calling was the eureka moment in Pooja’s life, that has given shape to what HealthHunt is today. She has set out on the arduous voyage to make a difference in people’s lives. And with HealthHunt, a content-led marketplace in the health and wellness space, she plans to do the same.

With healthhunt, she is helping people find precisely that joy, that balance between their mind, body, and soul. In just over a year, healthhunt has directly impacted 5 million users around the globe and continues to be Asia’s #1 SaaS wellness platform.   

“There is a reason I keep stressing on holistic living instead of healthy living. While healthy living could mean drinking a smoothie or going to a kickboxing class, holistic living means much more and is composed of everything that makes not just your body, but also your mind and soul happy. After all, isn’t that what life is about?”
