To improve access to essential medicines for children with endocrine diseases and diabetes in low and middle income countries.

 

GPED works with Regional Pediatric Endocrine Societies and local pediatric endocrinologists to facilitate a sustainable access to medicines that are essential to Pediatric Endocrine, care but not readily available; this is the case for fludrocortisone.

 

GPED will offer a platform where experience can be shared and expertise developed. GPED presently focuses on Africa and Latin America. A model that has been successfully by CLAN (Caring and Living as Neighbours) is being used in collaboration with Dr K Armstrong.
