Diabetes in children in resource poor settings
I have been wanting to make all of you who work with children and NCDs in resource poor settings aware of an opportunity to get patients with type 1 or other forms of diabetes access to care. Life for a Child (www.idf.org/lifeforachild) provides insulin, syringes, glucometers and strips for all patients up to age 25 years enrolled in their program. They also provide education materials and opportunities for training for providers. Check out the website or contact me for more information. Life for a child is now active in over 40 countries worldwide, and, if not already present where you work, can easily be established anywhere. Let me know if you have questions, I am happy to help you connect your young patients with diabetes.
