Life for a Child childhood diabetes education resources section

The International Diabetes Federation Life for a Child Programme has launched an online section - www.lifeforachild.org/diabetes-education-resources - that provides diabetes education resources for children with diabetes. The Programme has recognised for some time that one of the greatest barriers to improving the quality of care for children with diabetes in developing countries is the lack of education materials.

The section contains a diverse and extensive list of resources that include fact sheets and other material for parents and youth, parent manuals, links to interactive websites and videos, other links for children and families, and health professional education materials.

The resources are currently available in English and will soon also be online in French and Spanish. The Programme plans to make the resources available in over 15 languages.
