Insulin My Life (IML)
Many children worldwide die every year from diabetes. Unfortunately, majority of children with Type 1 diabetes, living in developing countries do not have access to the standardized care along with life-saving medicines they need. As a result, they become chronically unwell and are prone to life-threatening complications.
The aim of this project is to initiate a program for children with Type 1 diabetes who do not have access to insulin and other medical supplies. In the initial phase we have developed thirty three (33) Type 1 diabetes model clinics in the province of Sindh, Pakistan. The doctors and educators will be trained specifically to become well aware of Type 1 management and counselling.
Baqai Institute of Diabetology & Endocrinology (BIDE) is performing a pivotal role in training and educating doctors and nurses along with establishment, development and maintenance of specialized Type 1 diabetes model clinics. World Diabetes Foundation is our major collaborator for this project and along with the support of local collaborators we are in a position to establish an integrated health management system for Type 1 diabetic patients in Pakistan.
