National Diabetes Plans in Europe – What lessons for the prevention and control of chronic diseases?

This new policy brief presents the findings of a survey on National Diabetes Plans in EU and EFTA Member States as of August 2014. It seeks to identify the key enablers and barriers to the development, implementation and sustainability of national diabetes plans in European countries and so inform countries' efforts to build a successful and comprehensive strategy through the exchange of good practices. It is an output from the JA-CHRODIS Work Package 7, which has received funding from the European Union, in the framework of the Health Programme (2008–2013).
