Commitment to Action

Diabetes University: An Online Resource for Latin America

Commitment by

Clínicas del Azúcar

In 2013, Clinicas del Azucar committed to create Diabetes Online University, a 'one-stop-shop' for Spanish-speakers looking for information about diabetes prevention and treatment. While approximately 20 million people in Latin America suffer from diabetes, online resources for diabetics in Spanish are limited and fragmented. The Diabetes Online University aims to create a centralized platform that enables people to seek information about their disease and inspire them to obtain care. Clinicas del Azucar and its partners will leverage their technological and medical skills to lead both the development of the electronic platform and the content, aiming to reach 300,000 users by December 2015.
