Diabetes is the most common metabolic complication in pregnancy. In Tanzania, it affects as much as 13% of pregnant women and, unfortunately, if left untreated, it can be fatal to the mother and her child.
As part of the project carried out at Levolosi Medical Center in Arusha, we donated blood glucose meters along with safe lancets received from HTL-STREFA. This will allow more than 4,000 people to be tested for diabetes. 😊
