Veracruz Initiative for Diabetes Awareness (VIDA Project)
The VIDA Project is a joint intervention of the Secretary of Health of Mexico and the Diabetes Declaration of the Americas (DOTA), through PAHO/WHO. An assessment of the status of diabetes care was carried out in participating health centers as a baseline for the one-year intervention, which consists of in-service training of primary-care personnel on diabetes management as well as the implementation of a structured diabetes education program and a variety of innovative initiatives created by the local teams, e.g. the organization of diabetes clinics, a group visit by the Grupos de Ayuda Mutua (Diabetic clubs), and the use of promotores (health promoters) to carry out diabetes education, as well as participation by people with diabetes in the project's learning sessions.
