Diabetes has become a pandemic in Liberia. People are dying from the disease complications due to the lack of awareness on the disease symptoms, prevention and management. Type 2 diabetes is the most prevalence. Since the establishment of the Liberia Diabetes Testing Center, we have provided testing, counseling and nutritional supplements to hundreds of people that are suffering from diabetes from all ages and social background. The center mission is to take diabetes education and testing to the local communities in Liberia and to end the premature death of citizens due the lack of awareness on the disease prevention and management. This project is directed by James Momoh.
