Project HOPE, a global health education and humanitarian assistance organization, partnered with Takeda to launch the International Diabetes Educator E-Learning (IDEEL) Program. IDEEL is packaged as a self-paced online learning program/curricula that can be accessed from anywhere. The program is enhanced by a minimum 15 day clinical internship under the guidance of an endocrinologist and diabetes educator. Once the student has successfully completed the online course and internship, he/she will have a life-enhancing understanding of diabetes management across a broad range of age groups. Takeda has been supporting the developing online course of the program and expansion from India to other emerging countries since 2013.
IDEEL program has been successfully initiated in the month of September 2013 in India. Project HOPE is aiming to go live with the Spanish version early 2014. Following Spanish (or simultaneously pending funding), Takeda is also interested in the development of a Mandarin, Portuguese, Arabic and French not to mention various English versions for different English-speaking target populations around the world.
The program is targeting 800 enrollees by the end of June 2014 and another 1200 for the period July 2014- June 2015.
