The East Africa Diabetes Study Group (EADSG) is an organization committed to reducing the burden of diabetes in East Africa and beyond, by providing healthcare professionals with scientific information and educational initiatives designed to translate research into effective clinical practice.
Effectively managing diabetes requires both day-to-day disease management and up-to-date information on new discoveries and evolving therapies. The EADSG hopes to develop a wide-range of diabetes-related programs and materials to help healthcare professionals stay on top of new information, including short courses in epidemiology and translational research.
The 5th EADSG Scientific Congress (EADSG – 2020 Scientific Congress) will be held at The Speke Commonwealth Conference Center, Kampala, Uganda from the 24 – 26 February 2020.
The Pre-Congress: North-South Research Collaboration will take place on the 22nd and 23rd February 2020.
The EADSG Scientific Congresses are regarded as highly influential events aimed at raising attention to the healthcare delivery in diabetes and other non-communicable diseases in the East Africa Region. The main focus is on the prevention of diabetes and its complications and improved quality of life of people living with diabetes and other non-communicable diseases.
