Dexcom warriors raise awareness
For World Diabetes Day (November 14th) global leader in glucose monitoring systems (CGM) DexCom Inc. is teaming up with Dexcom warriors from around the globe, including Australia, to raise awareness about the need to improve access to life-changing diabetes technology.
To shine a spotlight on the everyday challenges of living with Diabetes, Dexcom has announced it will unveil a global portrait gallery that gives an honest but hopeful look at people living with diabetes from all walks of life as they navigate the highs and lows of living with the invisible disease.
The #SeeDiabetes campaign and portrait gallery reinforces Dexcom’s worldwide commitment to broaden access to critical diabetes technology and is aligned with the theme for World Diabetes Day 2021-23, ‘Access to Diabetes Care.’ Elevating broad awareness for the latest diabetes management technology is an essential part of Dexcom’s ongoing efforts to increase access and reimbursement for CGM around the world.
Since Dexcom’s #SeeDiabetes access and awareness campaign last November, reimbursement coverage for CGM, for people with diabetes, has expanded by 6 million people globally from 8 million to 14 million people1 with significant coverage expansions in the United States, Canada, France and Japan. In addition, Dexcom has brought previously unavailable CGM systems to market in nearly 20 countries around the world over the last 12 months.1
Despite this significant progress, millions more people with diabetes still face challenges obtaining coverage for the CGM systems they need to manage their condition more confidently. #SeeDiabetes: The Faces of Diabetes Warriors gives people with diabetes a unique platform to continue the global conversation about the need to improve access to critical diabetes care and technology.
“Awareness efforts like #SeeDiabetes, paired with clinical evidence that demonstrates the life-changing benefits of CGM, has led to the expansion of access to CGM for millions more people over the years,” said Dexcom president and CEO Kevin Sayer. “Dexcom is committed to working with healthcare providers, private payors, governments and non-profit organizations around the world to significantly expand access to CGM for people with all Types of diabetes.”
