Health Experts Call for New Strategies to Combat Alarming Rise in Diabetes
Date:9/25/2008

European

Union (EU) and 87 percent in non-EU countries have not been given an

opportunity to participate in educational initiatives about their

disease(5).

The report findings also highlight a perceived failure of policymakers within the EMEA to provide adequate funding for educational measures. Most healthcare professionals surveyed felt that current healthcare policies being implemented for diabetes by national governments are not placing sufficient emphasis on patient education (64 percent)(6).

"The Institute will be more than just a space for healthcare professional training", said Kenneth Moritsugu, M.D. "It is the starting point of a lasting relationship with the diabetes community, a focal point for collaboration amongst healthcare professionals, policymakers, patients and their families. We hope to help improve the understanding of diabetes and subsequently, to improve patient outcomes for one of the biggest public health threats of this century."
