Objectives & Approach

The basic health care providers in Madagascar do not screen for diabetes. Thus, awareness is low and people go undiagnosed and untreated until more serious complications such as diabetic foot or retinopathy arise.

This project will change this by creating awareness through primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention interventions. The Madagascan Association Malgache contre le Diabète will implement this project by strengthening educational and medical activities, training healthcare professionals, and strengthening the quality of care at diabetes clinics. Six clinics will be upgraded and eight new clinics will be established.
