A Healthier World Through Global Collaboration

WISH Impact in Latin America

After attending a WISH summit, Panamanian Minister Temístocles Díaz Lezcano identified the need to revise his nation’s policies for obesity, diabetes, universal health coverage and the reduction of maternal and neonatal mortality. The minister announced that after discussions with WISH, Panama will implement new policies in the healthcare sector, including the consumption of junk food and the treatment of diabetes. About 230,600 cases of diabetes are registered in Panama, according to 2015 data from the International Diabetes Federation.
