Message from the President
Prof. Khasag Altaisaikhan “As a member of IDF, The Mongolian Diabetes Association is committed to helping and championing effective self-management for all people living with diabetes. In this respect, we work on behalf of people with diabetes to advance their concerns and affect public and private policy. MDA also funds leading research towards a cure and therapies that can improve the ability to live with the disease. In addition, we work with clinicians to describe best practices for doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other health care providers in the care of people with diabetes.
We were pleased to have a voice in the new policy development and that MDA’s concern for effective self-management on behalf of people with diabetes, and our CPGs were carefully considered in the shaping of the policy. We will continue to encourage both provincial health care bodies and private programs to recognize the significant long-term cost-benefit that results from effective self-management and responsible blood sugar-level testing by people living with diabetes.”
