Novo Nordisk, a global healthcare company, observed World Diabetes Day yesterday to make people aware about healthy lifestyle for better management of diabetes.
Novo Nordisk has launched a nationwide diabetes awareness and education campaign until June of 2018, says a press release.
As part of the campaign, the Danish pharma giant in partnership with Diabetic Association of Bangladesh (DAB) and Padma Textiles organised 150 rallies across the country.
As this year's theme is 'women and diabetes', Novo Nordisk will screen 15,000 pregnant women and train 5,000 healthcare professionals on the risk of diabetes and modern treatment options.
To control and prevent diabetes, awareness and education are the main catalysts, said AK Azad Khan, president of DAB.
