Message from the President
Dr Mominat Omarova "As a member of IDF, ADS has pursued the policy of improving the quality of life of people with diabetes, through compliance with the vision and strategy of IDF. Having initiated the adoption of a Law on Diabetes, followed by a National Diabetes Plan, ADS achieved an increase in health expenditure on diabetes, with the condition recognised as a priority by the Ministry of Health.
