PROMOTE AWARENESS ON DIABETES THROUGH EDUCATION AND SELF-MANAGEMENT
DIABETES EDUCATION AND MANAGEMENT FOR CHILDREN WITH TYPE 1 DIABETES
What is Type 1 diabetes?
Type 1 (T1) diabetes is previously known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) or juvenile-onset diabetes.
Most people with T1 diabetes are young - children, teenagers and young adults (but it can also affect older people).
Management is by taking insulin injections, following a healthy diet, exercise and regular monitoring of blood glucose. (source: National Diabetes Institute – NADI)

We educate children who are suffering from Type 1 (T1) diabetes on self-care and management of their condition as well as motivate and inspire them to go through their teenage and adulthood life with confidence.
How many children/youth have benefitted from this programme?
A total of 230 children with T1 diabetes, parents and caregivers have benefitted from our Diabetes education and management camps in collaboration with NADI. Participants were given lessons on good dietery habits and how to build their self-confidence through interactive classroom lectures, fun games and activities.
