An amputation occurs every 10 minutes in the South Pacific due to Type 2 Diabetes. Today, 80 people will have an amputation due to Type 2 Diabetes. That’s 1 person every 10 minutes. 75% of people in the Pacific will die due to diabetes and other lifestyle diseases.
The 10000 Toes Campaign is inviting you to help change that. With your support we can stamp out diabetes in the South Pacific. Our strategies include:
1. Equip and train health professionals for early detection of Type 2 Diabetes.
2. Train and resource local lifestyle coaches
3. Support the upskilling of health professionals in diabetes management throughout the Pacific
