THE National Diabetes Centre in Waimanu Road , Suva received more than 58,000 glucose strips and five glucose meters from Insulin for Life USA.

Centre footcare project manager Viliame Qio said this would assist in the early screening of diabetes around the hospitals and health centres across the country.

“We don’t have the full resources that we need to assist people living with diabetes but we try to work with whatever is available and we are lucky to have foreign donors that assist us with medical equipment,” he said.
