Diabetes might be one of the most talked about diseases across the world and especially in India. Medical experts feel that timely detection and right management can go a long way in helping patients lead a normal life.
Novo Nordisk, an OPPI member company, initiated The Changing Diabetes to drive improvement in diabetes care and reduce the economic burden on healthcare systems by collecting and sharing data for diabetes care. Over 7.3 lakh people have benefitted under the programme. In order to train healthcare professionals, the company collaborated with the Steno Diabetes Centre, through the 'Practical Diabetology' programme. More than 2300 doctors and nurses from the government and private sector have been trained across India.
With the launch of around 100 community diabetes centers at government healthcare units across the country, tens of thousands of patients are getting the knowledge they need.
