O’Connor says this will also assist in policy making.
“Information collected will improve policy decision by having accurate data, better monitor of drug supplies for diabetics , better access to medical communities to the patients’ medical history, allow stakeholders treating diabetes and its complication to share information.”
The registration will run until November and the findings will be revealed during World Diabetes day.
