Mashrafe to promote diabetes awareness
Danish company Novo Nordisk has launched a campaign in Bangladesh by engaging Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, captain of Bangladesh ODI and T-20 Cricket Team, as the brand ambassador to create awareness on the prevention, detection, management and control of diabetes. An agreement in this regard was signed on Thursday at the Danish Embassy. Chargé d'affaires of Danish Embassy Jakob Haugaard spoke at the event and also had his blood sugar tested to start the campaign, according to Danish Embassy in Dhaka. Diabetes has been identified by World Health Organization as one of four non-communicable diseases (NCDs) that will pose a challenge to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
