ISPAD @ 5th ASPAE Meeting
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, May 14-16, 2014

The African Society for Paediatric & Adolescent Endocrinology (ASPAE) held its 5th Meeting on May 14-16, 2014. ASPAE is a young and growing organization founded in 2009, supported by ISPAD, ESPE and other international organizations.

Almost 60 participants attended this year’s meeting, which focused on how to overcome challenges in childhood diabetes and other endocrine disorders in an African setting. ISPAD and ESPE delegates shared knowledge and experience with local pediatric endocrinologists, making for some lively discussions.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, diabetes remains a major challenge and many children die before diagnosis, due to lack of adequate public awareness and lack of resources.
