According to official details, there are living more than 60 thousand people with diabetes in Kyrgyzstan currently. The illness does not occur at 50% of the population. In our country, diabetes causes approximately 2600 deaths annually.
Diabetes is curable and you can oppose the symptoms with the help of a diet, physical activity, medicine, regular examinations and the cure of complications.
A balanced diet, regular physical activity, the upholding of a healthy weight and the renunciation of tobacco can reduce the risk of being diseased with diabetes or push it out.
The aim of ADRA and our partners is the prevention and curing of diabetes in Kyrgyzstan through this project. While doing this, the focus is especially on the prevention of complications being connected with the disease, particularly the diabetic foot.
39 self-help groups, consisting of elderly people, take part in this project. These groups go through trainings about the prevention and control of two types of diabetes. They share their knowledge with the communities they live in, propagate a healthy lifestyle, especially to youth and support those who suffer from this disease.
