ISPAD, IDF & LFaC Pocketbook Guidelines
'These guidelines have been developed taking into account resource- and cost-related issues affecting care for children and youth with diabetes in developing countries. Healthcare funding and available expertise vary from country to country and often also within a particular country, and therefore it is challenging to write a broad document to meet all needs.
The information in these guidelines is aimed to assist health care professionals in developing countries to optimise the clinical practice they are able to give in their particular centre. In many cases, subsequent referral to a centre with greater exper tise is appropriate'
