Challenge

Due to the lack of diabetes education that children with diabetes and their families receive in Ecuador, many children suffer preventable complications including renal failure, blindness and even death. AYUDA provides youth to youth education on the importance of balancing diet, nutrition, exercise and blood sugar control to improve the quality of their lives, prevent complications and empower them to become leaders within the youth diabetes community.

Solution

AYUDA provides family education programs to improve diabetes management and health practices; Campo Amigo Ecuador - diabetes camping program for kids with diabetes to improve diabetes; Management and psycho-social health Outreach to local province.

Long-Term Impact

The program aims to reach all youth with diabetes in Ecuador, reduce their hospitalization rates & long term complications due to diabetes, & empower youth to become leaders & raise awareness and educate others about diabetes.
