May 2021 update

We had our second quarterly Diabetes Alliance meeting in May 2021. This was the second full meeting of the Diabetes Alliance, including the National Department of Health representative, Itumeleng Setlhare, and WHO representative, Joseph Mwangi.

The agenda was as follows:

  • Update on the Diabetes Registry progress by Patrick Ngassa Piotie
  • The GREAT for Diabetes initiative by Prof Bob Mash from the University of Stellenbosch

Here is the recording of the meeting:

We have space for one more board member from November 2021 to November 2022, please let me know if you would like to volunteer. The time commitment is minimal: 4 board meetings a year, one week before the Alliance meetings.
