To sustain, expand and refine outcomes of previously WDF supported UNRWA projects (WDF10-555, WDF11-614, WDF14-898, and WDF16-1406) to further improve preventive and curative measures.
• Educate and empower diabetes patients through introduction of a NCD booklet and a NCD e-booklet mobile application, which will provide home-based records for better self-care and improved disease management.
• Establish ‘Patient’s Health Stations’ at UNRWA clinics with innovative / interactive education material and exercise equipment.
• Further building of UNRWA health personnel to implement new approaches via comprehensive care training using a ToT approach.
• Expand existing UNRWA diabetes e-health system by applying a clinical audit approach (as in WDF11-614) with clinical indicators to monitor changes and measure the impact of the new interventions (data to be disaggregated by gender and age); KAP survey also to be conducted among both staff and patients.
• A sustainable, evidence-based diabetes management and prevention programme in all 143 UNRWA health centres serving 5 million registered refugees.
• 500 UNRWA medical doctors and 250 UNRWA nurses at the 143 UNRWA health centres with increased capacity to deliver a holistic diabetes program for patients and their families.
• 145,000 refugee diabetes patients directly served and educated in how to use the new NCD booklet or NCD e-booklet to manage their diabetes.
• 80 selected UNRWA health centres equipped with ‘Patient’s Health Stations’
• Clinical outcomes (e.g. BMI, HbA1c) of 145,000 patients registered, KAP survey of 750 trained HCPs and 4,000 randomly selected patients carried out.
