4 Main Problems of Diabetes Issues in Indonesia

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - There are four main problems in Indonesia regarding the treatment of people with diabetes according to Sebnem Avsar Tuna, a Novo Nordisk Corporate Vice President of Oceania and Southeast Asia.

“Based on the Blueprint for change in 2013, we found that there are four main issues regarding diabetes that is happening in Indonesia,” said Sebnem in the 2017 World Diabetes Day Symposium in Ritz Carlton Jakarta on Wednesday, November 29.

The following are four problems related to diabetic treatments in Indonesia according to her.

1. Low public awareness regarding diabetes in general.

2. The supply imbalance on the limited diabetes health care services despite the large number and the spread of diabetic sufferers.

3. The lack of resources in Indonesia’s public healthcare system.

4. The limited number of diabetic patients that receive treatment and insulin.

Sebnem Avsa Tuna is certain that resolving four of the problems can effectively reduce the number of diabetic patients in Indonesia.

Novo Nordisk suggests Indonesia apply the four practices for a better prevention and treatment system by collaborating more intensely with the government, improve the capacity of healthcare professionals, a more thorough patient education, and improve the awareness of diabetes.
