What diabetes means in Togo
While in Germany people with diabetes, especially type 1 diabetes mellitus, can lead a largely normal life, people in Togo struggle for survival with the same diagnosis. The health system in Togo is underfunded. Insulin, syringe accessories, blood sugar test strips and measuring devices are only given to the few who can afford it or the lucky ones who receive it through donations.
