What do you believe is the biggest issue in diabetes in South Africa? Biggest issue is that the government does not take the issue of diabetes serious, especially type 1 diabetes and the shortage of insulin and testing strips in government hospitals.
What do you plan to achieve for 2014/15 in YWD as an NEC member? I want to change the attitudes of teachers towards kids who have diabetes.
