The award was started in April 2016 in partnership with African and Asian universities with the aim of constructing a system of diabetes specialists throughout the world.

After the official launching of the Merck Foundation () at Cairo, Egypt on 24th October 2017, Merck Foundation has embarked on a powerful campaign to increase awareness on key health problems by taking part in the World Diabetes Day on November 14, 2017.

As part of the awareness initiatives, Merck Foundation has announced the Merck diabetes Award 2017 winners to indicate the WDD2017.

Winners of the “Merck Diabetes Award- Each Day is a Diabetes Day” were announced during the Merck Africa Asia Luminary at Cairo, Egypt. The winners are drawn from African and Asian universities.

The award is covering over 30 African and Asian universities with the aim of constructing a system of diabetes specialists throughout the world.

The award attracted over 500 concept submission programs from universities in Africa and Asia. The winners from each college have been supplied with an opportunity to study to get a one-piece postgraduate Diabetes Diploma in South Wales University, United Kingdom.

Merck Foundation encouraged medical students to use for the “Merck Diabetes Award” 2017 with the motif “Each Day is a Diabetes Day.” Students across African and Asian medical universities were asked to submit a concept paper about how to enhance diabetes early prevention and detection in their states and how to encourage their culture, scientific community, local governments, media and relevant stakeholders to think and act on diabetes daily.

“Merck Diabetes Award marks another landmark of our commitment to working with authorities, academia and relevant stakeholders in developing health care capacity with a focus on non-communicable disorders in developing countries,” explained Dr. Rasha Kelej, CEO of Merck Foundation.
