Sanofi co-created the Kids and Diabetes in School (KiDS) project with the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD) to:
- support children with type 1 diabetes manage their disease and avoid their discrimination in a school setting
- raise awareness of the benefits of healthy diets and physical activity among school children
The KiDS project is an educational program around the Global “KiDS” Toolkit, which is primarily targeted at teachers, school nurses and other staff, school children (6–14 years old) and their parents.
Our ultimate aim is to achieve sustainable change in those countries and we are working closely with our partners and policy-makers to introduce education around diabetes and healthy living habits in the national teachers’ curriculum.
"Sanofi is committed to sustainable solutions that improve the lives of people with diabetes everywhere—children included. We believe that initiatives such as KiDS are also essential for promoting healthy living at an early age, potentially helping in the prevention of type 2 diabetes."
