National diabetes awareness


MSD has partnered with Diabetes Ireland to deliver a national diabetes awareness roadshow, hosted in pharmacies across the country and open to the general public.

As a leading healthcare company in Ireland, MSD embraces our responsibility to engage, educate and build solid relationships with our key stakeholders through innovative initiatives.

It is estimated that there are currently 191,000 people living with diabetes in Ireland, and that by 2030 there will be 278,850 people with the condition.1

The roadshow awareness days offered free risk assessments for attendees conducted by on-site professionals, as well as advice and information on the risk factors, symptoms, management and treatment of Type 2 diabetes.
