The World Diabetes Foundation (WDF) supports prevention and treatment of diabetes in developing countries. In particular, it focuses on: awareness, prevention, education and training and enhancement of detection, treatment and monitoring.
With funding from WDF, HMRI soon will launch comprehensive type 2 diabetes services through Sanjeevani. This project will raise awareness, screen for diabetes, refer patients for disease confirmation, diabetic complications and gestational diabetes and monitor disease management. Since HMRI is using an existing platform to deploy this program, nearly all funding goes directly to patients.
