Welcome to the National Diabetes Strategy

A program to evaluate diabetes care in Canada

Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in Canada. Despite advances in treatments, many Canadians are not receiving optimal care and are at risk for the development of the serious and costly complications of the disease.

Western University and the Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) joined together to establish the National Diabetes Management Strategy.

Under the leadership of the Dr. Stewart Harris, Canadian Diabetes Association Chair in Diabetes Management, the over-arching goal of the National Diabetes Management Strategy is to evaluate the status of diabetes care in Canada, with an ultimate goal of reducing clinical care gaps and optimizing the management of diabetes
