The Republic of China (Taiwan) on Monday, November 16th, 2020 handed over a cheque in the amount of two hundred and twelve thousand US dollars (US$ 212,000) to the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment, as part of the Capacity Building Project for the Prevention and Control of Diabetes in SVG.
The funds will be used to purchase HbA1c and lipid testing supplies for the Cobas b analysers located at Chateaubelair Health Centre, Buccament Polyclinic, Levi Latham Polyclinic, Stubbs polyclinic and Port Elizabeth Health Centre.
This will increase the Ministry’s capacity to provide testing services for HbA1c and lipids within 15 minutes at five health facilities.
This will make it more convenient for clients who need these test results to monitor their cardiovascular risk, to diagnose pre-diabetes, and to control their diabetes.
