The AMU (Aligarh Muslim University) was seen launching an email and cell phone based medical services exclusively for diabetes patients, which is one of its kind in India. This service was launched by the university’s body called Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology, which comes in collaboration with one of the popular programs in the US – DEAP (Diabetes Education and Awareness Program). The services have been sponsored by one of the AMU Alumni based in the United States. The AMU based Centre and the program DEAP has recently signed the MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) pertaining to the project.
Jamal Ahmad, the Director of Rajiv Gandhi Centre was the one to inaugurate this function, which was held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College. Speaking at this occasion, the patients facing diabetes issues will be treated the best services. All you need to do is to register there and you can avail a number of facilities and services like instant inputs, support and nutritional guidance by the concerned experts, which can even address the emergency health services. He cited the examples of similar projects being run in countries like Germany and Korea and with its launch in AMU, even India comes into this list.
The lady behind the idea is Ghazala Khatoon who is hails from one of the US based alumna of AMU and inspired by one of the unfortunate death of her broth in law due to diabetes. She then discussed the idea with her alumni members to finally shape up this project having launched from the AMU. This medical condition is being on a rise since past few years and by 2030, you are expected to see more than 90 million Indians suffering from this menace. In this context, such moves are highly appreciable.
