It is unacceptable that so many people living with diabetes cannot get the medicine and healthcare they need. It is a catastrophe that so many of these are children living with type 1 diabetes in low-income countries.
The programme focuses on six areas that address local challenges:
Improvement of existing infrastructure
Training and education of healthcare professionals
Provision of human insulin and blood glucose monitoring equipment
Advocacy and good practice sharing
Patient registry system
In the programme's first 10 years, more than 171 million DKK (26 million USD) has been invested by the programme's partners.
In 2020, we set a new ambition to reach 100,000 children by 2030.
vials of insulin (100 units) donated.
healthcare professionals trained.
children and adolescents enrolled.
diabetes clinics established.
The materials have been developed to support healthcare professionals to communicate vital information to previously and newly diagnosed children with type 1 diabetes and their families.
Building on a set of recurring characters and settings, the materials engage children in talking about the challenging subject of self-control of diabetes.
If you are a healthcare professional or a parent/caregiver, you are welcome to download, print, read and use our education materials, developed in consultation with diabetes experts and practitioners.
The training manual for healthcare professionals was created to help doctors and nurses treating children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes in low resource settings. The manuals is based on the outcome of workshops and experts from the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes.
The patient handout booklet is to help children with type 1 diabetes and their families.
