Diabetes has become a global crisis, and due life styles, physical inactivities, urbanisation, and heredity many has been exposed to its complications. According to statistics, about 50% of those living with diabetes mellitus remain undiagnosed and thus becomes diabetic. Leading to severe complications and in most cases, subsequent death.
Over 243 million people worldwide remains undiagnosed on diabetes and this also is due to the fact that most are unaware or ignorant of their health status. We therefore wish to contribute in mitigating the prevalence of diabetes mellitus through glucose screening and awareness creation.
Through awareness creation and free blood glucose screening, we would be able to identify those with higher blood glucose/sugar and therefore follow up with them in ensuring that they maintain a healthy lifestyle. While subsidising there medical treatment.
This project through awareness creation and blood sugar screening, the project would be able to reduce the incessant death that arises due to the complications of diabetes mellitus. The project would also promote a healthy lifestyle among the community.
