Learn about one of our component societies
The Consortium is a nationwide association of diabetes clubs, which serves as support groups of the diabetes clinics set up mostly by ISDFI doctors as part of their covenant with schools. The consortium creates “cooperatives among patients of the different diabetes clinics so they can avail themselves of cheaper medications and laboratory tests. It also facilitates cross-referrals among member clubs. It assists the Department of Health (DOH) in promulgating policies on diabetes control, prevention, and treatment and helps train the staff of the different DOH diabetics clinic on diabetes care.
