Team up against Diabetes

Sun Life is focused on promoting the awareness, prevention, care and research of diabetes to help build stronger and healthier communities. The Sun Life Asia Diabetes Awareness Study shows diabetes or prediabetes currently affects 1 in 10 adults in Hong Kong.

But diabetes doesn’t have to be our destiny. The good news is that in many cases, the disease can be prevented, and that’s why Sun Life is committed to slowing the advance of diabetes and its related complications by working with local communities and supporting initiatives to improve the health and wellness of our clients, employees and the community.

Helping the employed to manage

Sun Life Hong Kong has made a donation of HK$80,000 to Diabetes Hongkong in support of the organization’s Emergency Blood Glucose Monitoring Assistance Program for the Unemployed. The program aims to mitigate the financial pressure on unemployed diabetic patients so that they can manage their conditions through self-monitoring of blood glucose, thereby avoiding or reducing complications.
