Diabnext Joins Global Effort to Reduce Risk For People with Diabetes During COVID-19 Pandemic
Alongside the JDRF – Beyond Type 1 Alliance, DIABNEXT is sharing recommendations for people with diabetes during COVID-19, aiming to curb the spread of COVID-19 and protect those most vulnerable.
May 4th, 2020 – Together with the world’s leading diabetes organizations, DIABNEXT is sharing guidance on high-impact COVID-19 prevention recommendations for people with diabetes. The recommendations aim to keep the most vulnerable to complications from COVID-19 safe until the pandemic has been contained. The recommendations were created by the JDRF – Beyond Type 1 Alliance and are also endorsed by the American Diabetes Association, Harvard Medical School, and The International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD). They can be found at coronavirusdiabetes.org.
Members of the diabetes community are among the most vulnerable to serious complications and death caused by coronavirus. While not everyone with diabetes — Type 1 or Type 2 — has the same level of risk, the recommendations target broad changes in behavior from everyone in the diabetes community to protect those members of the community who are the most at risk.
“The COVID 19 global sanitary crisis has put into light Diabetes chronic disease and its toll on patient’s lives. In these very difficult times, bringing together organizations like DIABNEXT, JRDF, Beyond Type 1 and many others is an outstanding opportunity to work together to fight Diabetes” remarks DIABNEXT President.
It is estimated that 463 million adults worldwide are living with diabetes. To reach this vast network, a global digital campaign has been launched with the help of partner organizations around the world. The website and campaign materials are available in Spanish and English, with a goal of translation into as many languages as possible.
Along with the list of recommendations, the website includes a variety of other articles, downloadable graphics, videos, and links to additional resources provided by JDRF, Beyond Type 1, and other partners. Organizations and companies looking to help in the effort can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
