The Diabetes Centre (TDC), a not for profit organisation, has been treating unprivileged diabetes patients and spreading awareness about the chronic disease since its launch in 2012.
Dr Asjad Hameed, founder of TDC, along with few other co-founders opened a small clinic at Phulgran which is located at the outskirts of Islamabad, the capital city of Pakistan. The clinic has to-date treated more than 17,000 patients free of cost and at present serving around 500 patients per week who mainly come from various districts of northern Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. A dynamic team of 11 full-time and visiting specialist doctors and 20 support staff are delivering best possible services six days a week.
Realising the magnitude of diabetes epidemic and lack of specialised medical facility in the country, TDC under the leadership of its founder is building a state of the art hospital besides the clinic. The hospital, first of its kind in South Asia, will have 08 different departments to provide a comprehensive solution to patients suffering from complexities of this deadly disease. More than 50% of the hospital construction work has been completed. It is anticipated that after opening the hospital will be able to serve 600 – 800 patients per day.
TDC in the meanwhile is focusing on educating the masses by regularly setting up free medical camps and awareness sessions at various locations within the country. A highly informative campaign on how to prevent and combat the disease is also being run through the social media platforms.
