"It gives me immense pleasure that our hard work, approach and efforts in promoting diabetes care and awareness have been recognized by IDF, the most recognized body committed to raising global awareness on diabetes," said Swadeep Srivastava, principal consultant, HEAL Foundation.

"It has given us new zeal and strength to continue our fight against diabetes with the purpose of raising public awareness on health issues and effecting desirable changes," he added.

IDF recognizes World Diabetes Day Champions globally on the bases of constant efforts in improving the health and well-being of future generations, promoting diabetes care and prevention and defending the interests of people with diabetes and those at risk.
