Message from the National Chairman

Kenya Defeat Diabetes Association (KDDA) is a grassroot organization that seeks to be the voice of the voiceless people living with diabetes and hypertension. The Association has been in existence from March 16 2012 when it was created and subsequently duly registered on June 21, 2012.

KDDA has a wide network of diabetes and hypertension support groups (DSGs) established across the Counties of Kenya. Support groups come together to create an advocacy groups forum on a monthly or weekly rotations during when they are screened for diabetes and blood pressure at a small fee or for free.

During DSGs meetings members are trained on the benfits of proper nutrion, exercises, stress management, myths and misconceptions, drug side-effects and more important on Insulin administration.

At KDDA, we emphasize that people living with diabetes and people who have managed their blood pressure are not patients. People who have managed to reduce their weight are no longer at risk of chronic diseases. Therefore we have tried to DEFEAT diabetes, hypertension and obesity by making Diabetes and Hypertension a community agenda

We work together as partners with the Ministry of Health both at National and County levels and other stakeholders. We believe that United we Can
