Message from the President
“Our diabetes centre Vivir con Diabetes is a nonprofit institution dedicated entirely to providing comprehensive care for people living with diabetes in Bolivia. In 2006 we became a member of the International Diabetes Federation, and since then, we have worked with enthusiasm and dedication following IDF guidance. We have a multidisciplinary team of Comprehensive Care in Diabetes, doing clinical work, prevention, early diagnosis and supporting people with diabetes with no economic resources. We offer diabetes education for people with diabetes and health professionals. It is an honour to be part of the International Diabetes Federation and we work to make IDF proud.”
