Pharmacy Daily - - News -

ASX LISTED Ea­gle Health has out­lined am­bi­tious plans to fur­ther boost its pres­ence in China, build­ing on the suc­cess of its “Hu­tang 1” Aus­tralian pre-meal shake prod­uct for

Type 2 di­a­betes and Pre-Type 2 di­a­betes in the Chi­nese mar­ket.

The com­pany cel­e­brated the per­for­mance at a Chi­nese New Year con­fer­ence, fol­low­ing the 01 Dec launch of Hu­tang 1 and the of­fi­cial open­ing of four di­a­betes Ed­u­ca­tion and Ex­pe­ri­ence stores through­out Xi­a­men, China.

On av­er­age, around 280 di­a­betes pa­tients have vis­ited the stores on a daily ba­sis since the open­ing, to get ed­u­ca­tion about the risks, pre­ven­tion and man­age­ment of di­a­betes, the com­pany said.

Ea­gle Health md Zhang Ming­wang said, “It is a great hon­our for all of us at Ea­gle Health to be able to pro­vide a world class and clin­i­cally val­i­dated so­lu­tion for Type 2 di­a­betes suf­fer­ers in China to sup­port them in their life­style in­ter­ven­tion in or­der to man­age this se­ri­ous na­tional health is­sue.

“Xi­a­men is Ea­gle Health’s home city and with the lo­cal gov­ern­ment’s fo­cus on di­a­betes it makes Xi­a­men the per­fect place for us to launch our prod­uct Hu­tang 1.

“With our new high speed pro­duc­tion line now fully op­er­a­tional we are well poised to de­liver the sales tar­gets we ex­pect in 2018, and con­tinue to roll-out to our dis­tri­bu­tion net­work im­me­di­ately af­ter the Chi­nese New Year hol­i­day.”

In ad­di­tion to the open­ing of the stores in Dec, Ea­gle Health’s in-field coun­sel­lors and nurs­ing staff have is­sued over 200,000 in­for­ma­tion leaflets and pro­vided di­a­betes coun­selling ser­vices to over 3,600 pa­tients across neigh­bour­hoods in Xi­a­men, while the Com­pany has in­vested in large-scale out­door ad­ver­tis­ing, tele­vi­sion and news­pa­pers.

Ac­cord­ing to the IDF Di­a­betes At­las 8th Edi­tion, there are 114.4 mil­lion peo­ple with di­a­betes in China in 2017 and this is pro­jected to grow to as high as 149.7 mil­lion by 2045.

It is fur­ther es­ti­mated that there are an ad­di­tional 110.7 mil­lion peo­ple with im­paired glu­cose tol­er­ance, con­sid­ered to be pre­di­a­betic or at risk of di­a­betes, across China in 2017.
