Scaling up the WHO-PEN package for diabetes and hypertension in Swaziland: a nation-wide cluster-randomised evaluation of three strategies in Swaziland (WHO-PEN@Scale)

Project description

Scaling up the WHO-PEN package for diabetes and hypertension in Eswatini

Eswatini (formerly known as Swaziland) has a very high prevalence of both diabetes and hypertension but provides relevant care only through physician-led teams in hospitals. The country has recently participated in a successful pilot study of the World Health Organization’s package of interventions for primary healthcare in low-resource settings (WHO-PEN). The EU-funded WHO-PEN@Scale project aims to improve diabetes and hypertension control at the population level via the identification and scale-up of the most effective decentralised healthcare delivery model based on WHO-PEN guidelines. The project will provide a blueprint of task-sharing in the healthcare system to manage diabetes, hypertension and other non-communicable diseases for other countries in the region.
