Syarikat Faiza gives RM450,000 for diabetes education
SHAH ALAM: Syarikat Faiza Sdn Bhd has contributed a RM450,000 grant to enable the National Diabetes Institute (Nadi) to carry out educational activities on the disease.
Health director-general Datuk Dr Hasan Abdul Rahman said, among projects which would be implemented by Nadi was the publication of the magazine, 'Nadi Diabetes', twice a year for public and private clinics, and hospitals.
The grant would also be used to finance diabetes examination programmes and hold courses for medical officers and paramedics on the latest diabetic treatments, he told reporters here today.
Earlier, he witnessed the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Nadi, which was represented by National Diabetes Institute board of trustees chairman Tan Sri Abu Bakar Suleiman and Syarikat Faiza managing director Faiza Bawumi Sayed Ahmad.
Dr Hasan said, to date, 2.6 million Malaysians were identified as having diabetes and estimated more would succumb to the ailment.
Meanwhile, Faiza Bawumi said the company's contribution was to help the government control the increase in diabetic cases through education. -- BERNAMA
