Ongoing and New Activities
In the Swiss team, there are physicians (diabetologists/endocrinologists), diabetes counsellors/advisors, dieticians, medical health assistant and podiatrists which carry out the training courses during their annual visits.
There is also training in other medical fields related to the management of diabetes, such as management of hypertension, nutrition, and podiatry.
Further activities of the charity organisation include:
- Donations of equipment which is introduced and used in an effective and economic manner, e.g. provision of glucometers and sphygmomanometers (blood sugar and blood pressure monitoring devices) directly to people suffering from diabetes.
- Public Screening: in order to reach as many people as possible and to make awareness of diabetes. The public screenings are carried out annually and each time in a different location.
