In this presentation, we shine a spotlight on the critical issues surrounding the management of diabetes in developing countries and other resource-limited settings. Our primary goal is to explore and understand the unique challenges confronting healthcare providers in these regions as they navigate the complexities of diabetes care. We will delve into the hurdles related to limited resources, access to medications, and diagnostic tools, along with the difficulties of providing comprehensive support to individuals with diabetes under these circumstances. By sharing experiences and insights, we aim to foster a deeper appreciation of the challenges faced by healthcare providers and to encourage discussions around innovative solutions and support systems that can help improve diabetes management in these resource-limited settings.
  • Identify Unique Challenges: To help healthcare providers recognize and understand the distinct challenges of managing diabetes in resource-limited settings, such as limited access to medications and diagnostic tools.
  • Strategies for Resource Optimization: To explore practical strategies and solutions that healthcare providers can employ to optimize available resources and deliver effective diabetes care.
  • Enhance Clinical Competence: To improve the clinical skills and knowledge of healthcare professionals, enabling them to provide quality care and education to individuals with diabetes in resource-limited environments.
  • Promote Collaboration and Strengthen Patient Support: To encourage collaboration and information sharing among healthcare providers, enabling them to learn from one another's experiences and successes in order to continue to offer comprehensive support to individuals with diabetes despite the challenges.
