Diabetes Awareness Week by emed


Each year, more than 3 million people die from diabetes-related causes. The burden is particularly harsh in countries like Pakistan where rise in Diabetes is 180% per year. Here many children with type 1 diabetes die, because they lack access to life-saving insulin and where the majority pay for their healthcare from their own pocket to the detriment of the family budget.

 

The overwhelming costs of the disease threaten to stunt economic growth and undermine the benefits of improved standards of living and education. The countries who least can afford it will bear the greatest share of the burden. To do nothing in the face of the emerging crisis, to ignore its seriousness, or to dismiss its impact is foolhardy and irresponsible. The World Diabetes Day 2006 campaign will address diabetes in disadvantaged communities and vulnerable groups. The campaign slogan is:

”Diabetes in the disadvantaged and the vulnerable”

emed & Pakistan Diabetes & Endocrine Society (Faisalabad Chapter) in line with World Diabetes Foundation, International Diabetes Federation & United Nation Resolution for Diabetes are held a Diabetes Awareness Week for General Public, Doctors, Students, Nurses & Paramedical Staff from November 6th to November 14th 2006.
