Attention all diabetes patients, advocates and supporters.
Today is a special day! Bill C-237, which is an act to establish a national diabetes framework in Canada, was officially passed in Parliament today! The passing of this bill makes it a law that Canada must establish a national diabetes framework to address the growing epidemic of diabetes in Canada.
Diabetes is a devastating disease which affects millions of Canadians every year and has a huge cost for our health care system and individuals:
So what does this all mean?
Now that Bill C-237 has passed, the Federal Minister of Health in Canada has 1 year to table a national diabetes framework in Parliament. This is amazing news for diabetics. Now that this bill has passed and the government has committed to creating a national diabetes framework, Canada can prevent millions of cases of type 2 diabetes and avoid hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations for diabetes-related complications over the next ten years. It can also mean diabetics across Canada will get improved access to medications, devices and critical life saving supplies like insulin pumps and advanced glucose monitoring devices that will ensure that no diabetic struggles to afford the care they need, and deserve!
