Defeat Diabetes Campaign

The double whammy of COVID and Diabetes has been a wake up call for all of us specially during the second wave. Diabetic patients presented with severe illness and the requirement for hospitalization and risk of mortality was significantly higher in diabetic patients. We have all witnessed the sharp rise in patients presenting with steroid induced diabetes and mucormycosis. The high prevalence of diabetes, majority of them being uncontrolled and an even larger number of prediabetic and undiagnosed diabetic patients, made it worse.

It's high time that Blood Sugar is recognised as the fifth vital sign and we start an aggressive campaign to create awareness among the general public regarding the importance of screening and regular monitoring of diabetes. With this objective RSSDI will be launching a nationwide campaign "Defeat Diabetes" from 1st of July 2021. We have already created a task force of volunteers and have engaged with professionals who would be assisting during this campaign for the next 100 days. With the tagline "Test, Track and Treat" creative content will be propagated to masses through various means of communication.

If you would like to actively participate in this campaign by forwarding the creative content through your social media handles and whatsapp groups please drop in your whatsapp number in the below form. Our team members will get back to you.
