Our association

Our mission

The Swiss Association for Diabetic People in Guinea-Bissau (Association Suisse Aide aux Personnes Diabétiques en Guinée-Bissau – AAPDGB) helps the people of Guinea-Bissau affected by diabetes and hypertension who do not have access to treatment. We work to raise awareness, prevent and screen for the different types of diabetes, particularly among women and children, in order to reduce amputation and mortality rates. We provide medications, medical equipment and tools free of charge. We also build the capacity of local healthcare professionals to treat diabetic patients in Guinea-Bissau.
