A scheme to prevent diabetes from early age among primary school children was launched on Saturday in 700 schools across Yazd Province from the provincial capital Yazd, in the presence of Health Minister Hassan Qazizadeh Hashemi. The scheme has three main objectives: healthy diet, appropriate physical activity, and reducing stress among students and their family members. It seeks to promote prevention, raise awareness and provide support for treatment, including timely diagnosis, IRNA reported. The plan is part of a series of programs designed for this year’s National Health Week (April 20-26) focused on increasing diabetes awareness and prevention, strengthening care, and enhancing surveillance.
