Past issues

Word for Word Media cc has been appointed as the new publishers of Diabetes Focus Magazine. Diabetes SA and the publishers have identified that a fresh approach is necessary and we look forward to providing an exciting and innovative “new look and feel” in terms of the publication’s content, layout and design.

Word for Word Media is a proficient publisher within the NGO arena, with an extensive understanding of the marketing and advertising functions. We are committed to relationship marketing, as well as keeping abreast of social networking.

Karen Joseph and her team will be committed to the successful implementation of the revised publishing strategy of the well-established Diabetes SA publication.

Diabetes Focus is the quarterly magazine of Diabetes SA and its aim is to inform, encourage and motivate people to lead a long and healthy life. The readers of Diabetes Focus seek out the articles that improve their lifestyle choices and assist in the management of the risk factors, signs, symptoms and prevention of diabetes.

Endocrinologists, Ophthalmologists, Podiatrists, Dietitians, and other medical experts in the field of diabetes provide a deeper understanding in our in-depth features on a range of topics in every issue.

The online issues will include seasonal diabetes-friendly recipes, interviews, and features on various health topics. Diabetes Focus provides an action plan for not only the person with diabetes but for their family and support system. Our mission is to educate and empower people with diabetes to cope and change lifestyle habits.

Side effects of diabetes are explained and topics such as eye complications, foot problems, pain and inflammation as well as a new section focusing on sexual health. The new look issue will also have a new column on technology in the field of diabetes. With the number of people diagnosed with diabetes increasing at an alarming rate worldwide, only advanced treatments are effective if people can use them appropriately and accommodate them within their daily lives.

The glossy magazine is distributed through online channels including membership subscriptions through Diabetes SA’s network of 8 branches and 70 support groups, hospitals, clinics and pharmacies.

Diabetes Focus readership is expected to grow with DSA’s new website, Facebook Twitter and a soon to be launched electronic version to well over 25 000.

Diabetes Focus offers you the ideal platform to advertise your products or services to specific niche with a well established loyal following. Diabetes is a manageable but chronic disease, and the magazine offers you the perfect opportunity to build loyalty and retain customers for life.
