Global Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes (GPED) is a non-profit organization established in 2010. GPED aims at improving the care of children presented with endocrine disorders or with diabetes living in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) through public advocacy, training and education of local health professionals, clinical collaborations and development of translational clinical research.
Access to care
