A Message from the DG

At Dasman Diabetes Institute, we strive to accomplish the vision set forth by the late Shiekh Jaber Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah; therefore, with the continuous support of HH Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, we aim to establish one of the world’s leading research institutes. Throughout this journey, we aspire to achieve excellence in diabetes management and prevention while building the foundation for financial sustainability.
We are confident that we shall achieve high-impact translational research that allows us to “translate” diabetes research and integrate the findings to basic medical practices.
With these findings, DDI aims to actively contribute to the diabetes population in Kuwait as well as the global diabetes research communities.
