Foot Care Caravan

The APSA Caravan was launched in 2014 and is comprised of a podiatrist, nurses and health educators who travel across the island to care for those suffering from diabetes. The objective is to provide a program of proximity to fighting against amputation. Education, preventive care and check-ups are being carried out along with the distribution of the booklet ‘je prends mes pieds en main’
