The Novo Nordisk Education Foundation (NNEF) has launched a Centre for Excellence (CoE) for children with Type 1 diabetes in collaboration with the established Government Institute of Medical Sciences (GIMS), Greater Noida.
The newly inaugurated CoE will help improve the quality of care for Type 1 diabetes and ensure the availability of insulin supply to children with Type 1 diabetes in the region.
Underprivileged children in India who live with Type 1 diabetes may not have uniform access to insulin for treatment, leading to debilitating health consequences. This CoE is an effort to offer free care for these children and advocate with the government for better and sustainable access to insulin supplies. It will also provide support, education, and quality training to develop a pool of resource personnel for managing childhood diabetes.
Further, it will help create a registry and promote research and development (R&D) to encourage the generation of scientific publications and provide appropriate recommendations for the management of diabetes mellitus in Indian children.
