The Diabetes Association of Jamaica (DAJ) aims, through a holistic approach, to continue to promote diabetes prevention. We endeavor to ease the adverse effects of diabetes on the quality of life. With our highly trained Public Health Promoters, we have been able to effectively reach the masses wherever they can be found with the message of diabetes prevention. You can find us at parties (dancehall/sessions), health functions (whether seminars/conferences) or anything in between.
Event public health (screening) activity is a very special aspect of our Outreach Programme. To date, we have screened over 800 persons and our efforts have helped to bring about the early detection of diabetes (and its complications) to over 14,000 patrons. We want to acknowledge event organisers (promoters) and sponsors who have made this possible.
