The official added that a population of two thousand children is estimated, but it will be the nominal registry that determines how many there are and where they are.
“The most important issue of diabetes is learning to live with this disease, so we need to live with it,” he said.
The goal is that all children can receive treatment at this hospital.
“The treatments will be in the health centers, here it will only be orientation, education, classes for parents and psychological support.”
The State Government will support with insulin for the treatment of all sick children. This year there is a budget of 10 million pesos.
