Engaging with the government is vital to bring diabetes challenge on national agenda. Novo Nordisk in Pakistan, leveraging its global initiative of changing diabetes® Leadership Forum, has been working rigorously with policy makers and other key stakeholders within the central and provincial government to help tackle the issue. To date, Novo Nordisk has organized:

  • Pakistan Diabetes Leadership Forum in partnership with The Ministry of National Health Services ,Regulation and Coordination (MoNHSRC) in 2014.
  • Khyber Pakthunkhwa Diabetes Forum in partnership with KP Health department in 2015.
  • Punjab Diabetes Forum in partnership with Specialised HealthCare and Medical Education Department Punjab in 2016.

As a result of these efforts, we are now gradually advancing towards bringing more focus on defining National and Provincial action plan to address the diabetes challenges in respective areas.
