Abstract

Diabetes prevalence is at an alarming level. It is predicted that one in ten adults will have the condition by 2030 compared with one in eleven at present. Despite several global calls for action to reverse such a trend, the number of people with diabetes and associated lifestyle diseases continues to rise leading to significant health burdens, morbidity and premature mortality. Such challenge makes it crucial to adopt immediate preventative policies which embed effective lifestyle diabetes interventions, especially those integrating multi-components interventions.
