CDiC India has developed a unique, interactive and enjoyable way
to help children with diabetes and their caretakers better understand
how to manage diabetes.
Based on the traditional game of “snakes and ladders”, the
app invites players to help Mishti (a character with type 1 diabetes
used in patient education materials in the CDiC programme) reach the
top of the board. Players have to click on the “roll a dice” icon, and
answer a question related to diabetes. Correct answers allow Mishti to
move forward and climb up the ladder, while wrong answers make her
slip down a few squares.
The game requires an active internet connection and is available
online at http://cdicindia.org/snake_ladder
