How to spread awareness for prevention of diabetes


Whenever you thought that Where I should start and what should I ask? Then decide following points to discus (with colleagues, diabetic centers, hospitals, head of pharmaceutical companies and many others) -

How much did you contribute towards awareness for diabetic Patients.

How much awareness v/s business vertical?

How much you could help for diabetes awareness.

How much other institutions are doing and what protocols are adopt for the same.

How much we could make the data base to know the projected future diabetics.

If efforts are made by different levels, then what are the reasons of failures.

The real issue is not having to measure – but, 'how much' is important in any effort because real need is, in 21st century non communicable diseases are shifting to 'how' and achieve the 'how much' as an outcome of getting how’s right for awareness.

Today health institution and organisations of public or private sector have realized the need to bring in effectiveness along with efficiency. It makes it imperative for us to drive the how to prevent diabetes (and other non communicable diseases), because its growing like epidemic, and our infrastructure and supply of related medication (Insulin or OHGA) will be insufficient respectively very shortly. Then what will be the solution, may embarrass any concerning doctor.

Thus manifesting high trust environment in private or public institutions. Where decision are made on beginning of awareness, and awareness methodologies based on asset of core value.

But again is the time to review the approach of conferences and govt polices. Because till date no result oriented polices benefits reached to the general public, due to miss management.

So, what else can other NGO do in order to keep their focus, so that organisation and patients both will be benefited . We should stress that the key is to find the balance between the two.

"The How" to provide a path, but you need to have milestones (how much to assess) approaches to make awareness and to make comprehensive data base(You will be surprised to know that no data bank of diabetic patients are available in Asian countries). Then I am sure we will start moving in the right direction. Because there is always a tendency for the how much to take precedence over How. However, a lot of performance and measures, but also the behavioral aspect will open the door of success.

Though the shift of 'how much' to 'how' has been very recent, it is certainly gaining ground. Singhal Diabetic Clinic (SDC) pointed out the shift is a path of self motivation as doctor to a common man on quality of life and prevention from diabetes especially when any family member is diabetic. SDC has started a step to towards awareness through
