About this Program • Diabetes Resources
Chronic Disease Prevention and Management works with community programs to deliver services and activities that aim to reduce the rate of chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, among Indigenous people.
Our key objective is to improve the health status of First Nations individuals, families and communities by promoting healthy living and supportive environments. This is important for the prevention of all chronic diseases.
We work specifically to reduce the prevalence and incidence of diabetes. To that end, we focus on healthy eating, food security, physical activity and obesity. We also work to increase the awareness of diabetes, including its risk factors and complications, and of diabetes screening and management.
