The Health Bank Introduces Diabetes Connected Care at NADEP Diabetes FootCon2021

With Pakistan being the 3rd largest diabetes-affected population in the world, The Health Bank Global (THB) took to the stage at NADEP Diabetes FootCon 2021 to introduce Diabetes Connected Care to tackle the issue. Zarmina Jafar, the Chief Strategy Officer of THB spoke about the service and what it could do for the way people view and treat the disease. Additionally, she introduced Wasim Akram as the Brand Ambassador for the service. The innovative service offers a combination of daily monitoring and tracking through remote monitoring health care devices along with nutritionist and clinical support. THB aims to reduce in-person hospital visits through this multidisciplinary outcome-based care.


Wasim Akram, who has been a longstanding spokesperson for healthy living and an active member of the Diabetes Connected Care program, shared how he was diagnosed as a diabetic at the peak of his cricketing career at the age of 29. The Brand Ambassador and Advisory Board Member for THB addressed the room through anecdotal lessons he pulled from his own life and shared how it is important to be aware and fully informed about diabetes to help treat it properly. “The average person doesn’t know what diabetes is” stated Akram, as he shared that only once the disease was understood, only then can it be curbed and subsequently treated for those affected.


Emma Macbeath, the Clinical Operations Manager at THB in Dubai was next on the podium. Macbeath spoke about her journey of reversing her type 2 diabetes by being on the Diabetes Connected Care Program.


Through THB’s Diabetes Connected Care program, patients get access to a service that not only provides a team of specialists and a holistic management approach, but also the latest tech and innovation in the field.
