Though global health efforts commonly focus on infectious diseases, the burden of chronic diseases is
growing rapidly in the developing world. FIMRC-DR runs a community-based diabetes and hypertension
program in three of our communities. In this program, patients receive education regarding the
management of these illnesses as well as monthly consultations and prescription refills in coordination
with a chronic disease specialist who visits our site once a month. To keep up with the needs of an ever-
growing number of people suffering from these chronic illnesses, this project will fund the purchase of
medication and the transportation needed to reach our groups each month.
