Management of Chronic Diseases

Chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, cancer and mental disorders constitute a rapidly growing challenge to health systems globally. As a newer thematic area, we have learnt from studies on risk factors, management, and cost of diabetes treatment, and are starting an innovative intervention study where theories of change and health beliefs will be contextualized into messages to improve health behaviour.



The Self-management and Reciprocal Learning for the Prevention and Management of Type 2 Diabetes aims to strengthen the capacity of health systems to treat and prevent the growing Type 2 Diabetes burden through proven strategies like task-shifting and expanding care networks.
