Programme objectives include training physicians, nurses and community health workers; rolling out a screening programme for diabetes and hypertension; establishing patient record systems and awareness raising and mobilisation at the community level.

 

 

Approach

 

This project intends to strengthen diabetes and hypertension care at primary level, raise awareness and improve health information management in three provinces through the following activities:

 

Capacity building based on training of physicians, nurses and community health agents, and on provision of basic equipment, following IDF and WHO-PEN model guidelines.

 

A paper-based and, where possible, electronic patient record system will be established and integrated with national level health information systems.

 

At community level, awareness raising and mobilisation are enabled through local health promotion activities and distribution of education materials as well as through radio and TV programmes.
