Servier joins the fight against diabetes
Diabetes, a chronic disease that affects millions of people worldwide with 463 million people diagnosed with diabetes globally and an alarming statistic indicating that every 8 seconds a person dies due to this disease (1), the need for awareness and education becomes more pressing than ever. In addition, a surprising fact is that 1 in 2 people with diabetes is not aware that they have this condition (1), which further underlines the urgency of addressing this public health problem.
Servier Central America and the Caribbean has decided to join the fight against type 2 diabetes once more with its #ACTNOWFORDIABETES campaign. Recognizing the importance of managing this disease properly, Servier is committed to taking meaningful steps throughout the month to raise awareness and educate the community about type 2 diabetes.
To meet this goal, Servier has designed a multi-channel strategy that will reach patients and physicians in the region. Some of the planned actions include:
- Informative stories on Instagram
- Educational patient leaflets
- Talks to patients in health centers given by health professionals
- Digital medical education event that will include the entire Central America and Caribbean region
A call to action
