Investigators from the University College of Dublin, members of the INTE-AFRICA project consortium, have released an informative toolkit to understand how to best develop a model of integrated care that improves diabetes and hypertension treatment in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly in Tanzania and Uganda.
The toolkit is the result of an extensive review of system preparedness and sustainability of integrated care across Africa. It details how primary and secondary care can best collaborate to optimize integrated delivery of services; advocates for the implementation of an integrated model of care; and puts forth suggestions on how these can be best tailored to different contexts.
The toolkit is designed to target decision-makers in low-resource settings, as well as organizations considering funding of similar projects in the future.
