The lack of awareness among health care providers (HCPs) is one of the biggest challenges for the management of patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) in India. Major challenges faced by HCPs include lack of awareness about the disease among general physicians and inadequately trained staff to deal with children with T1DM. The changing diabetes in children (CDiC) program is helping in overcoming these barriers faced by HCPs.
