Rural Diabetes Management Project

This project has been led by HRF researchers working with BUIB as the hosting side for the project. The project in its 8th year is built on a model that uses trained nursing students to diagnose and treat diabetes in rural communities through point-of-care testing. The project has generated three peer-reviewed publications and won external funding from the World Diabetes Foundation in 2018. The funding is meant to expand the project to cover six more rural communities. The Centres for Innovation in Education and Research Development, and Social Accountability and Community Development are collaborating on this project.
