Integrating and decentralising diabetes and hypertension services in Africa

Project description

Scaling up provision for diabetes and hypertension in sub-Saharan Africa

Six European and three sub-Saharan African partners are together testing the efficacy of integrating HIV, diabetes and hypertension services in Uganda and Tanzania. The aim of the EU-funded INTE-AFRICA project is to improve the health outcomes for people living with chronic conditions. The burden of diabetes and hypertension has risen sharply in Africa and these conditions now account for about 2 million premature deaths on the continent. Yet, the proportion of people with these conditions receiving regular care remains very low. At present, health services are fragmented for chronic conditions, provided by different clinics, and patchy for diabetes and hypertension. Bringing them together (in integrated primary care clinics), may prove to be more cost-effective for health services and patients.
