Establishment of Primary Health Care in Rural Tanzania

There has been a growing burden globally from non-communicable disease, such as diabetes, and the situation is worsening in developing countries like Tanzania. This program aims to determine the prevalence of diabetes in Rorya, Tanzania, and to develop and implement a patient and community education program on risk and prevention of diabetes, as well as develop a screening program. The results of this cross-sectional study will be published to raise awareness of the prevalence of diabetes in rural Tanzania with continued community education using the resources developed in this project.
