Abstract

Aim: The article reports on the recommendations from the Diabetes Primary Prevention Project that was initiated and funded by the Division of Diabetes Translation, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and developed by the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors.

Method: Essential components of statewide programs are delineated for effective interventions for diabetes primary prevention. The recommendations were derived from a structured process that is detailed on the basis of a cross-comparison of state-level diabetes prevention initiatives in six states where such programs were most developed.

Results: The recommendations focus on state-level partnerships, statewide program planning, required resources, policies, benchmarks for progress, and data collection.

Conclusion: Illustrations are provided regarding how the project influenced the six participating states in further developing their programs for the primary prevention of diabetes.
