CITIES

Partners in 16 cities are collaborating to generate new knowledge and insights into urban diabetes.

The Cities Changing Diabetes programme is currently active in 16 cities, representing more than 100 million citizens, at different stages of development. Each city contributes through its partnerships to establish a new knowledge base of the social factors and cultural determinants that make some people vulnerable to the development of type 2 diabetes and its complications in their city.

The work in the study cities acts as a platform for the programme to grow globally. It provides a basis for connecting and understanding the challenge of urban diabetes, and for enabling and inspiring many more cities to join in the global fight against urban diabetes.
