Diabetes Advocacy: #DiabeticSouthAfricans

In celebration of National Diabetes Month we want to unite Diabetic South Africans and create awareness about diabetes. It’s time to show SA what #DiabeticSouthAfricans look like! Join us in diabetes advocacy.

What diabetes advocacy looks like

How do you join us in diabetes advocacy? By raising your voice. Film a video (no longer than 1 minute) introducing yourself, telling us how long you’ve had diabetes and answering one of the below questions:

  • What does a sugar low feel like?
  • What does a sugar high feel like?
  • Who are your biggest supporters?
  • What advice would you give to a newly diagnosed diabetic?
  • What affects your sugar levels?
  • How best to support someone with diabetes?

Upload your video on World Diabetes Day (Thursday 14th November 2019) on the Diabetic South Africans Facebook page and on your social media. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #DiabeticSouthAfricans.

Diabetes advocacy for all

Diabetic South Africans Advocacy is a space for all people with diabetes – and their friends and families – to join together and make their voices heard.

We will advocate for fair treatment of people with diabetes, medical aids to provide us with the medication and devices we need to live well with diabetes, and government to work with us to create a healthy space for diabetes in South Africa.
