Be­fore or­ga­niz­ing the camp, our of­fi­cers ap­proach ev­ery house­hold and cover al­most all the res­i­dents with an ob­jec­tive to cas­cade in­for­ma­tion and spread aware­ness among the peo­ple about Camp ac­tiv­i­ties through dis­tri­bu­tion of Di­a­betes IEC ma­te­ri­als. Also, bulk mail­ing

and mes­sages through So­cial Me­dia are cir­cu­lated by RWA Of­fi­cers for spread­ing aware­ness re­gard­ing the camp. Dur­ing the month of De­cem­ber 16 camps were or­ga­nized across Delhi. Dur­ing th­ese camps, our field of­fi­cers vis­ited about 7,890 house­holds, cov­er­ing al­most 31,560 per­sons. About 2,160 per­sons vis­ited th­ese camps, around 1,761 reg­is­tered and tested Ran­dom Blood Sugar (RBS) dur­ing th­ese camps and 1,127per­sons un­der­went HBAlC test­ing. About 1,345 vis­i­tors of all age groups watched the street play (riukked natak).

Vis­i­tors reg­is­tered their valu­able feed­back and highly ap­pre­ci­ated the ef­forts done by all un­der the flag­ship of ASSOCHAM and its highly es­teemed mem­bers.

Di­a­betes, a life style dis­ease, is a grow­ing threat, which can be pre­vented through life­style changes. It can be pre­vented by 30 min­utes of daily mod­er­ate ex­er­cise and a healthy diet. Stud­ies have been con­ducted which sug­gest that if we cre­ate aware­ness among young pre-di­a­betic adults, then we can re­duce the in­ci­dence of di­a­betes to a great ex­tent, as it is rightly said 'Pre­ven­tion is bet­ter than Cure'.
