Diana Novelo Alzina – Mexico
This project’s main goal is to create a census of all people living with type 1 diabetes in Yucatan, in collaboration with the Diana’s Diabetes Association, the Asociación Mexicana de Diabetes en el Sureste (AMDS) and with the support of doctors.
After quantifying the number of people living with type 1 diabetes in this Mexican State and integrating this information with data from the other States of the Mexican Republic, the project will generate national statistical data that aims to influence public policies in order to obtain appropriate, safe and full access to treatment for people living with type 1 diabetes.
People living with type 1 diabetes in contact with the AMDS have all been registered in 2018. Diana and her association are now focusing their efforts in registering the rest of the people living with type 1 diabetes: the people which are not members of the AMDS and which do not benefit from its many activities.
