August 2021 update

Our third Diabetes Alliance meeting for the year was an exciting one. We discussed the Diabetes Alliance Vision, Mission and Values (document below) and the Inaugural South African Diabetes Summit, to be held in November 2021.

There was robust discussion around the goals and purpose of the Summit, and we look forward to volunteers for each of the 5 workstreams mentioned:

  1. Awareness and prevention
  2. Education
  3. Management and access to care
  4. Surveillance (data)
  5. Innovation and research

As well as volunteers for the Summit Planning Committee. Here is the form to fill out if you would like to be involved.

Here is the recording of the meeting:
