University of Pretoria is set to host the Diabetes Summit

# The University of Pretoria’s Diabetes Research Centre and the Diabetes Alliance are preparing to host the Diabetes Summit on Wednesday, under the theme, ‘Diabetes Targets, Translating Policy into Reality’. The summit aims to advance the response to the prevalence of the disease in South Africa and accelerate progress towards the implementation of the National Strategic Plan for the Prevention and Control of Non-communicable Diseases. The university says of major concern is the rate of incidence of diabetes in women in South Africa, especially in pregnant women.
