6:30 pm - War on Diabetes Designathon

War on Diabetes Designathon

Singapore has the second highest proportion of diabetics among developed nations, according to a report in 2015 by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). In 2016, Health Minister Gan Kim Yong declared a “War on Diabetes” to inspire collective action to help people prevent and manage Type 2 Diabetes.

Fortunately, it is possible to live a life free of Type 2 Diabetes through behaviour changes such as proactive health screening,

increasing physical activity, improving eating habits, and adhering to medical advice and prescriptions.

In keeping with this vision, the War on Diabetes Designathon invites healthcare professionals, designers, students, and passionate innovators to design programmes or tools to motivate citizens to take charge of their health and fight Type 2 Diabetes.
