APSA International is implementing a “Community Health Care and Education Network” in collaboration with Dr. Xavier Debussche and Mrs. Maryvette Balcou Debussche from “Diabète au Logis”, Reunion Island.

This project enables persons with diabetes/or people at the risk of developing diabetes and/or cardiovascular diseases to attend educational group sessions where they learn to adopt healthy lifestyle behaviors by learning to :

  • Reduce Cardiovascular Risks
  • Control Fat Intake
  • Manage Physical Activities

These sessions propose group workshops and an individual follow up to help the diabetic patients learn how to live with diabetes and its complications. Hence, this type of therapeutic education allows patients to properly manage their disease, be more independent and benefit from a better quality of life.
