Posted on 09/12/2011 | 1 CommentWith Diabetes leading the exponential increase of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), innovative and effective solutions are becoming urgent to tackle the challenge of diseases that require long-term care, and for the patient to actively participate in the disease management. The growing burden of NCDs, with the crying lack of healthcare personnel in low and-middle income countries (LMIC) creates a complex issue while limited means are available. This situation led to the creation of a diabetes education and support platform fully carried trough SMS, allowing information to reach thousands of patients and providing a reliable channel to ask questions about diabetes.
