To contribute to the prevention of hyperglycaemia in pregnancy (HIP) in Dasmariñas City and Quezon City, the Philippines
1. Pilot an electronic referral system in local health facilities
2. Promote HIP guidelines to health care professionals, facilities and pertinent professional organisations.
3. Develop a telereporting system for postpartum follow up on HIP cases.
4. Conduct a localised cost-benefit analysis to support the implementation of HIP initiatives at the primary care level.
In the Philippines, initiatives for the prevention and management of HIP need to be institutionalised and accelerated by public and private health sector actors at both national and local level.
Building on the successful outcomes of WDF16-1349, this project scales up integration of HIP prevention and care in the Philippines with guidelines conceived on a strong multi-stakeholder platform with Philippine Society of Endocrinology Diabetes Mellitus (PSEDM), the Philippine Obstetric and Gynaecological Society (POGS) and the Nutritionists-Dietitians Association of the Philippines (NDAP).
The project promotes a people-centred holistic approach as it catalyses coordination of endocrinologists, diabetologists, obstetricians, and nutritionists-dietitians for co-management at different phases of pregnancy, including the postpartum phase.
Driving advocacy processes based on multi-stakeholder consensus and cost-benefit assessments, the project seeks to promote subsequent nation-wide scaling.
