The 19th Al Bawasil Diabetes Camp was inaugurated on 30th December 2018 by Qatar Diabetes Association, a member of Qatar Foundation.

The five-day event will run until Thursday, 3rd January 2019, at Guest Services at the Al-Majilis al Janoub – Student Housing Complex in Education City. The event is being held under the patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chairman of Al Shaqab – a member of QF.

It has brought together 50 children between the age groups of 7 and 11 from 12 diabetes associations from many countries across the region, including Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Sudan, Algeria, Libya, Palestine, Iran, Jordan, Tunisia, and Morocco.

The camp features a series of fun and educational workshops, some of which have been organized in collaboration with QF Recreation Center. The aim of the camp is to help children educate about how to control their diabetes.

Few of the significant areas to be covered by the camp includes blood glucose monitoring, recognition and management of hypo-/hyperglycemia and ketosis, insulin types and administration techniques, and the importance of adopting healthy lifestyles.

The goal of the sessions are to encourage participants to share their experiences with one another.

A specialized medical team is supervising the activities, including resident physicians, nurses, dieticians, and five administrative committees, including individuals who have diabetes and have previously attended the camps.

The first Al Bawasil Diabetes Camp was held in January 1999, since then the event has been held every year. It has become one of the most important diabetes camps in the region.
