Abstract:

The Diabetes: A National Plan for Action is the latest initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to address diabetes prevention, detection, and treatment. Prompted by the Secretary's commitment to disease prevention and health promotion, together with efforts of individuals and organizations: including the American Diabetes Association, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International, American Association of Diabetes Educators, and other professional associations: the national action plan utilizes a comprehensive action-oriented approach to identify activities among relevant stakeholders to improve diabetes prevention, detection, and care. This document is designed to: 1. reduce the prevalence of diabetes and factors that increase the risk of diabetes; 2. promote improved diabetes detection, monitoring, and treatment; and 3. reduce the complications of diabetes.

The plan seeks to raise national awareness of existing resources, facilitate and coordinate efforts, and leverage resources for the prevention, detection, and treatment of diabetes. In addition, the plan outlines steps individual Americans can take to help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes, together with recommendations persons already diagnosed with diabetes can use to prevent or delay complications from the disease. However, individual action alone is not sufficient for addressing diabetes. Thus, the plan also recommends and outlines action steps for families, friends, health care providers, schools, the media, communities, health insurance providers, employers, researchers and professional educators, and tribal and other government agencies, to help mitigate the increase in the prevalence of diabetes and its complications. Additional information and resources about diabetes prevention, detection, and treatment are also provided.
