Free insulin for poor children in Delhi
New Delhi: Many diabetic children from the economically weaker sections of the society in the national capital will be provided insulin free of cost, said a Delhi based diabetic centre Sunday.
Delhi Diabetic Research Center (DDRC) will provide insulin free of cost to 150 poor children suffering from Type 1 diabetics.
The initiative was announced by DDRC at a day-long event at Talkatora Stadium here.
"Children with Type 1 diabetes need daily dose of insulin, regular monitoring of glucose level, periodic visits to the doctors and subsequent pathology tests, which becomes a bit unaffordable for the weaker section of the society," said Ashok Jhingan, diabetologist and chairman, DDRC.
All the children provided free insulin are between the age group of 0-18.
"Initially we will provide free insulin to 150 children and slowly shall extend the reach to more children," Jinghan added.
