Grant number: 1005324 | Funding period: 2014 - 2017
The prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in developing countries has increased dramatically. Action is now urgently required to develop targeted, low cost intervention programs to prevent T2DM. The Kerala Diabetes Prevention Program (K-DPP) is a cluster randomized trial in a rural area of Thiruvananthapuram district in Kerala State, India, of a culturally appropriate locality-based group diabetes intervention targeting individuals (aged 30-60 years) at ‘high risk’ of developing T2DM.
