Community empowerment
and involvement in health

Communities have the power to engage people outside the formal system. Outside of work, it is where we spend the majority of our time. Cities Changing Diabetes aims to involve and empower communities in health initiatives in an effort to strengthen the support network around vulnerable individuals who have diabetes or are increased risk of developing the disease. The hope is to improve their quality of life as well as their diabetes care and treatment outcomes.
