Abstract

The prevalence of diabetes continues to increase dramatically, with an estimated 4 million people living with the condition in the UK. South Asians are 3-6 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than the general population. In early 2014, the South Asian Health Foundation extended its South Asian Community Health Education and Empowerment (SACHE) programme to include South Asian people diagnosed with diabetes. The programme had already been delivered successfully in 2012-14 for cardiovascular disease. This article outlines the development and results of this award-winning diabetes education programme.
