Diabetes is a great challenge in the developing world. Many children and adolescents with diabetes die quickly or are chronically unwell due to lack of availability of quality care. Education of children and their families is essential so they can understand what diabetes is and live a healthy and full life. Likewise, health professionals need resources and training to provide quality care.
One of the key activities of the IDF Life for a Child Programme (LFAC) is making education materials on diabetes in children and adolescents more widely available. The LFAC online education resources section currently features materials in 12 languages, from a variety of sources, that are freely available for download.
