According to the latest statistics, 17% of Qatar’s adult population has been diagnosed as diabetic. This follows a larger, international trend, in which diabetes has grown nearly tenfold across the globe over the past two decades.
With proper medical care, diet and exercise, people with diabetes can manage their disease, avoid complications and live a healthy life.
Qatar Diabetes Association (QDA) – a non-profit organization and member of both Qatar Foundation and the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) – endeavors to be the leader in diabetes prevention and care, both locally and across the region.
Through implementing various educational programs, QDA aims to bring awareness to its population. QDA believes diabetes does not need to be a hindrance for people to lead a normal, healthy life.
