Who we are
The Chronic Care Center is a medico-social institution, specialized in the treatment and follow-up of childhood chronic diseases: Thalassemia and Type I Diabetes.
Know The Signs
I drink a lot and feel thirsty all the time. I have frequent urination. I am always tired and hungry. I eat well yet lose weight.
Am I diabetic?
You should consult your physician. He will ask for blood glucose level and other tests to make sure if you have diabetes.

Since 1994, the Chronic Care Center has been cooperating with:

- Thalassemia International Federation (TIF), Cyprus.

- Juvenile Diabetes Foundation International, USA.

- Association Jeunes Diabétiques (AJD), France.

Starting 1994, the Center has been supported at the curative and/or preventive level by the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Social Affairs, the European Commission, SLCD, UNICEF, WHO, Hope Worldwide, and many other organizations.

The Center's partners and supporters, who believed in its mission, have increased with time.

In 2000, the Center benefited from the assistance of the Italian Government to equip its Genetic Research Laboratory, through MOPH and AVSI.

In 2003, the Japanese Embassy supported the Laboratory through the Grass Root Program.

Since 2016, the Center has been partnering with the Ministry of Public health and other stakeholders in the yearly National campaign on Diabetes.

In 2018, the Center joined the Global Compact Network Lebanon to explore innovative solutions to accelerate the SDGs in Lebanon, and work together towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals and 2030 Agenda.

In 2018, the Center partnered with the global programme Cities Changing Diabetes which aims to better understand the rise of diabetes in cities and improve the lives of people with Diabetes in Beirut.
