A4D Publications : Closing the Type 1 Diabetes gap in South-East Asia through government partnership working with non-government organisations.

Published in April 2022. Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice.

This will be the first publication of Type 1 diabetes (T1D) outcomes in five low-middle-income countries (LMICs)- Laos, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar in the Southeast Asia (SEA) region. The information obtained has been possible due to partnership programmes of non-government organisation Action4Diabetes (A4D) with defined local hospitals through a Memorandum of Understanding signed with the governments in SEA that guarantees ongoing supplies of free insulin, blood glucose meter supplies, HbA1c tests and hospital emergency funds.
Participants: Between 2020 and 2021, 383 children and young people with T1D who were active in the A4D supported programmes were reviewed including information on health coverage, multidisciplinary team management, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) on admission and insulin regimen.
