What happens with a child during pregnancy when the mother has malaria? Could malaria during pregnancy even cause diabetes in the child later in life? With the majority of diabetes studies focusing on Western urbanity, we desperately need data on the challenges and changes happening in rural areas of developing countries.

One of the most common ways of communicating science today is through a one-dimensional focus on visuals such as graphs, illustrations and images. These often lack aesthetics and thereby fail to ca…
 
Language is a powerful tool for shaping attitudes and behaviour. Today, scientists and health care professionals’ communication with and about people with diabetes often includes non-inclusive, stigmatising and disempowering language.
