With 366 million people, primarily from low middle income countries, estimated to have diabetes in 2011, preventing diabetes and its complications has now become a global health challenge. models of primary and seconday prevention of diabetes can be used for the prevention of other NCDs as well since chronic diseases share the sme risk factors cuch as physical inactivity, unhealthy eating habits and tobacco consumption. This paper cites some 'real-world' example of successful programs for prevention of diabetes at chennai in southern India. If these models could be replicated in other developing countries, it could signifantly reduce the burden of not only diabetes, but other NCDs as well.
