This online module is supported by an educational grant from FIND and The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust and therefore, it is completely free.

If you experience issues opening the module, such as encountering a white screen, this may be due to your browser settings blocking pop-ups. Our website and modules require pop-ups to be enabled for optimal functionality. To resolve this:
1. Go to your browser’s Settings.
2 Disable the pop-up blocking option.
Then, try reaccessing the module.

This common problem occurs because there is a space before or after the email address, and the system does not recognise it. Make sure your address has no additional spaces before signing up.

In case you experience problems while completing the course, or you have further questions, the IDF School team will be happy to assist you through info@idfdiabeteschool.org.
