An intersectoral innovative solution involving DIGItal tools, empowering families and integrating community CARE services for the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes and hypertension

Project description

Families empowered to defend against diabetes

There are about 60 million people with diabetes in the European region. The prevalence of diabetes is increasing, mostly due to increases in excess weight and obesity, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity. In this context, the EU-funded DigiCare4You project will deliver an intersectoral innovation involving digital tools for early screening, prevention and management of type 2 diabetes and hypertension. Specifically, more than 10 000 families will be targeted in two middle-income and two high-income countries. Schools will be an entry point to the community. While existing procedures for children’s periodic growth assessment (conducted via school nurses or in collaboration with local community health centres) will be improved, parents/caregivers will be screened via a non-invasive self-reported digital tool.
