The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Diabetes Control Program (DCP) has received funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) since 1994. Activities supported by the Mariana DCP include the following:

  • Maintain diabetes prevalence registry. A registry of about 1,500 persons receiving diabetes care provides prevalence data by age, sex, ethnic group, insurance coverage, and complications. The registry provides the best information about the burden of diabetes among the Chamorro and Carolinians, the Mariana’s indigenous population>
  • Educate diabetes patients. A support group was established for patients attending the diabetes clinic. The group meets regularly tor discuss diabetes and ways to improve self-management of the disease.
  • Enhance community understanding and awareness. The DCP initiated a diabetes awareness and education program for the media, private industry, local politicians, and lay person leadership.
  • Educate medical providers. The Mariana DCP sponsored a workshop for public and private medical providers on the results of the Diabetes Complications Control Trial and their implications for preventive care strategies and practices of care for people with type 2 diabetes.
