The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has made funds available through GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit) Technical Cooperation for A4D.
The funds will be delivered with the “Changing Diabetes in Children” (CDIC) programme, which is in collaboration with Novo Nordisk.
GIZ Technical Cooperation Project in Cambodia aims to strengthen the Ministry of Health of Cambodia (MoHC) in alignment with the national health strategic plan. The objective is to ensure that disadvantaged and vulnerable Cambodians can access health services of good quality without financial burden.
The grant provided through (CDiC) is the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) between GIZ and Novo Nordisk. It will sponsor existing health content from the MoH as well as support the development of new, digital content through A4D’s HelloType1 programme.
Other digital initiatives by A4D for the T1D Community in Cambodia, such as online workshops and healthcare webinars, will also be endorsed.
A4D’s Digital Innovation Manager, who is leading the HelloType 1 programme, Anne-Charlotte Ficheroulle said:
“We are delighted to agree on starting a very important partnership in Cambodia with the CDiC Programme supported and implemented by GIZ, Novo Nordisk and the Ministry of Health.
“We believe that by working together it will make a tremendous impact on HelloType1 mission.
“Education is a fundamental component of Type 1 Diabetes care that will lead to a better quality of life for all the children, young adults living with T1D and their families in Cambodia.”
