This report is an integral part of the survey on practices for prevention and management of diabetes conducted by the WP7 of the European Joint Action on Chronic Diseases and Promoting Healthy Ageing across the Life Cycle (JA-CHRODIS). The survey was organized in two phases: the first had the objective to provide a structured overview about current programmes (interventions, initiatives, approaches or equivalents) that focus on aspects of primary prevention of diabetes, identification of people at high risk, early diagnosis, prevention of complications of diabetes, comprehensive multifactorial care, education programmes for persons with diabetes and training for professionals; the second phase was devoted to the description of the programmes identified in the first one.
The survey was not intended to provide an exhaustive description of all the activities on diabetes in the participating countries, in fact the partners were asked to report plans, programs, interventions, strategies, experiences that they felt worth to be reported and shared. The programmes described in this report may be considered as potential good practices until they will be evaluated using a set of quality criteria.
