Project Overview

PROJECT HISTORY:

“Extension of D-TALK & Insulin for Life Program” is the merger of two separate projects namely “Insulin for Life Program” funded by Chief Minister Special Initiative and “D-TALK (Diabetes Treatment and Life Knowledge)” funded by the DDCF (District Delivery Challenge Fund)

Prevalence of the diabetes was 7% (Seven Percent) 15 years back but now after the pilot Study of D-TALK, prevalence of diabetes is 16.98 % which is one third higher to that of previous years.

Now it is highly required to improve awareness in community regarding the Diabetes Treatment and Management that will eventually decrease the NCD burden as well.

Meanwhile if it is still not dealt on priority and focused base it can ultimately affect people in the productive years of their lives. Pakistan is a developing country with the triple burden of disease. In such condition along with CDs, NCDs and injuries other Financial and clinical issues will be exaggerated.

The “Insulin for Life Program” has registered almost 11,149 patients with providing free insulin throughout the project tenure. While “Extension of D-TALK and insulin for life project” has now registered to date more than 45000 needy patients from the province.
