Pharmacist Driven Health Awareness Campaign On The Occasion Of World Diabetes Day


The Kamra ta’ l-Ispizjara ta’ Malta would like to invite you to participate in a health awareness campaign on the occasion of World Diabetes Day which is celebrated internationally on the 14th November 2012.  This campaign is being organized with the support of the Maltese Diabetes Association and the Pharmaceutical Industry and will be run against a minimal donation of 2 Euros per patient with proceeds going to the Malta Community Chest Fund (MCCF).

The campaign will run for the week 12-17 November with patients being able to take their BG readings either by just walking in or by appointment depending on the system the pharmacist wants to adopt according to own work schedule.

Sticks and lancets for the Blood Glucose meter as well as monitoring cards to hand over to the patient will be provided. If you do not own your own BG meter let us know.  If you have your own let us know the brand so that we can take note.

The campaign will be publicized in the local media such as TV breakfast shows, radio pragrammes and newspapers as well as through Local Councils and Parishes.

There will be two (2) workshops prior to the start of the campaign so that all participating pharmacists are equipped with the advise that needs to be given to the patients, as well as know the logistics of the running of the campaign.

The participating pharmacist must be a fully paid up member of the Kamra for 2012.    Pharmacists who would like to participate and are not paid up are kindly requested to regularize their position.  This may be done by sending a cheque of fifty (50) Euros made payable to the “Malta Chamber of Pharmacists” at the following address:

127, The Professional Centre, Sliema Road, Gzira

or via  internet banking to HSBC account no  089-022594-001 or BOV account no 40017968768.
