New interdisciplinary Danida research project
15 million people worldwide between the age of 30 and 69 die of non-contagious diseases such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases each year. Over 80% of the deaths occur in low and middle income countries.
Professor Tine Gammeltoft has received a grant of DKK five million from Danida to fund her research project that will take a closer look at the role of the informal healthcare system concerning patients with diabetes in Vietnam.
The project runs until 2021.
