Awareness Program on Type 1 diabetes in school children
KiDS is an international collaborative project of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and multiple partners, including Sanofi. The KiDS project aims to foster a safe and supportive school environment for children with diabetes. The objective is to prevent discrimination while raising awareness about diabetes and the benefits of healthy eating habits and physical activity among school children.
Following Brazil and India, Pakistan became the 3rd country to launch this project. Sanofi Pakistan launched KiDS in collaboration with Diabetic Association of Pakistan (DAP) in 2016. The inaugural program of KiDS was conducted at Lahore Grammar School (LGS).
In 2017, KiDS program was rolled out in public sector schools in Karachi.
