DDI

Dasman Diabetes Institute (DDI) was established under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmed Al Sabah, the late Amir of the State of Kuwait, and the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS) to combat the prevalence of diabetes in Kuwait. Since its inauguration in 2006 by His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah (the current Amir of the State of Kuwait), the Institute has strived to address the diabetes epidemic in Kuwait through focused diabetes research, integrated prevention, training and education.
