As the end of 2014 nears, it is exciting to reflect that the IDF Life for a Child (LFAC) Programme has not only expanded support to six new countries but also increased the number of centres in countries already participating in the programme. Some 15,000 children and youth in 48 developing countries and the health professionals who care for them, are currently receiving a variety of resources free of charge from LFAC.
New centres join existing LFAC-supported centres in extending care for disadvantaged children and youth with diabetes across Ecuador, India, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan, and the Republic of Congo. The overall positive impact of this growth is manifold, beginning with the health of the children and youth with diabetes who might otherwise have died or remained chronically unwell. Along with building the global diabetes network, LFAC support eases pressure on under-resourced local health systems.
“We're truly crossing all boundaries with this Programme.” says LFAC General Manager Dr Graham Ogle.
