I would never have tested my blood sugar

Mr Kamal Khatiwada is a respected member of his community in the Taplejung District of Nepal. So when the Human Practice Foundation organised a diabetes screening camp at a village school, he attended to show his support.

Mr Khatiwada’s first blood glucose results were high - a second test, taken after lunch, was even higher. In shock, he went to district headquarters for a follow up test in a private clinic, which confirmed the initial results. He started treatment for type 2 diabetes soon after.

Without the screening camp, ”I would never have tested my blood sugar … and been compelled to face the worst,” he says.

The screening camp in Taplejung District was part of School Based Diabetes Prevention, WDF16-1432
