The ABCD type 1 campaign was launched
at a press conference on the evening of November 8, 2012.
This high profile campaign for 2012-2013 is to highlight the
differences between the types of diabetes and the fact that
patients with type 1 have special needs which are easily
overlooked because type 2 diabetes is so much commoner. In
particular the campaign will suggest that people with type 1
diabetes deserve unhindered access to specialist care, when
they need it, throughout their lives.
