First ISPAD Diabetes in Practice (DIP): Train the Trainers Conference
October 8-10, 2019, Yaoundé, Cameroon


Organized and funded by ISPAD, University of Minnesota (USA) and Changing Diabetes in Children Cameroon (CDiC), ISPAD's First DIP (Diabetes in Practice) Training of Trainers course, took place in Yaoundé, Cameroon, Central Africa, from October 8 to 10, 2019.

Cameroon is located in Central Africa with approximately 23 million inhabitants. Nearly 600 children have been diagnosed with diabetes and 10 childhood diabetes clinics established since 2009 (CDiC Project). Cases remain underestimated, with a high mortality rate due to lack of trained healthcare personnel/teams. In this context, the course aimed to increase awareness among healthcare workers. In attendance were 12 doctors (including 4 pediatric endocrinologists), 10 nurses, 2 dietitians, 2 CDiC and 4 representatives of the Ministry of Health of Cameroon. The course was delivered by a team of five professionals, from University of Minnesota, led by Professor Antoinette Moran.
