Fousseny Diakité – Mali   

My project aims to raise awareness of diabetes and provide guidance on living with the condition. The goal is to eradicate the marginalisation, discrimination and stigma that people with diabetes frequently encounter in entertainment venues and services. Our community has discovered that diabetes is not a fatal condition. Proper management, such as timing medication and following a healthy diet, can help prevent complications. By raising awareness and providing education, we were able to reach approximately 1200 people who live with diabetes or are at risk of developing it. Furthermore, our invaluable advocacy efforts facilitated insulin access for 10,200 people while ensuring that 125 people with diabetes received glucometers.
