Latest issue of Diabetes Voice focuses on improving access to diabetes care
05 July 2017
In the July issue of Diabetes Voice, we turn our attention to the problem many people with diabetes face in accessing essential care and medicine across the globe. Diabetes is life-long and its management can be costly both for people with diabetes and national health systems.
Many people living with diabetes in high-income countries, who are financially protected by universal coverage health systems, fight for access to new technologies, such as continuous glucose monitoring. However, many health systems in less-resourced countries are not able to provide standard diabetes care to people with diabetes without exposing them to economic vulnerability.
