WHO's global

launch

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has

launched a new initiative to support people living

with diabetes. The Global Diabetes Compact

will support countries in implementing effective

programmes for the prevention and management

of diabetes.

The goals of the Compact, which was

announced on World Diabetes Day 2020, are: (a)

increased capacity of health systems to detect,

diagnose and manage diabetes; (b) integration of

diabetes care into existing programmes, thereby

leveraging existing capacities in the healthcare

system and meeting people's healthcare needs

in a more holistic way; (c) the scaling-up of

health promotion efforts to prevent diabetes,

particularly among young people.

The Compact brings together in one

package all WHO materials to prevent and

manage diabetes - both existing and new. With

prevention, particular focus will be given to

reducing obesity, especially among young people.

With treatment, emphasis will be on improving

access to diabetes medicines and technologies,

particularly in low- and middle-income

countries.

Quiz for T2 risk

Middle-aged men in England are

being encouraged to take Diabetes

UK's 'Know Your Risk' quiz to test

their vulnerability to Type 2 diabetes,

as part of an NHS campaign partly intended to

prevent more Covid-19 deaths, The Guardian reports.

The online quiz asks seven questions about weight, height

and waist size to establish body mass index (BMI) and any family

history of diabetes. Results are given four bands from low to high

risk - people scoring moderate or high will be asked to refer

themselves to local health services to change their lifestyle and

lose weight. The NHS says it fast-tracked the campaign after

research found that people are twice as likely to die of Covid-19 if

they have Type 2 diabetes.

Quiz participants will also be encouraged to sign

up for support from the NHS Healthier You diabetes

prevention programme.

Prof Jonathan Valabhji, NHS England's national clinical

director for diabetes and obesity, said: "The evidence is clear.

Obesity and Type 2 diabetes significantly increase the risk

that many of us face from Covid. And we already knew that for

men over 40 in particular, the risk of Type 2 diabetes steadily

increases with age, so it is crucial people in this group check

their risk and get the right support. As we start to see signs of

normal life returning, there has never been a better time to start

living a healthier lifestyle, and we want to support even more

people to do this."

Ascensia HCP tool

Ascensia Diabetes Care is rolling

out a free online educational

platform for healthcare professionals

(HCPs) working with people with

diabetes. The On@Pro tool, piloted

in September 2020, is developed

in partnership with the TUMAINI

Institute in Germany through a

collaboration with Professor Peter

Schwarz, a globally renowned

diabetes expert.

The are several modules, split into

basic, advanced and add-on modules;

each takes approximately 30 minutes

to complete. The 18 basic modules

cover diabetes prevention, diabetesrelated

complications, diabetes in

daily living and diabetes management,

including nutrition and activity,

self-monitoring of blood glucose,

oral antidiabetic drugs, and insulin

dosing. The nine advanced modules

cover specific diabetes sub-groups or

diabetes in particular scenarios - in

pregnancy, in the elderly population,

or adolescents and children. The final

add-on modules cover e-health in

diabetes, diabetes in Ramadan and

blood glucose awareness training.

Rob Schumm, President at

Ascensia Diabetes Care, says,

"Through our conversations with

healthcare professionals, we became

aware of a strong desire for a more

comprehensive education platform

in diabetes. One of our priorities is to

provide free educational resources

to HCPs that can build a greater

understanding of diabetes and its

management. We believe this will

equip GPs, nurses and pharmacists

with the knowledge needed to advise

and support

people to more

effectively selfmanage

their

condition."

The On@

Pro platform

is easily

accessible

and offers bite-size

modules for effective and efficient

continuous learning. The tool is

currently available in 13 countries,

including those in the Middle

East, South Africa, Egypt, India,

Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, the

Philippines and Nepal, with plans to

add additional markets throughout

2021. It can be accessed via Android,

Microsoft and iOS.
