Health system decision makers in NL recognize the burden that Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) places on both the individual and on the healthcare system.

In an effort to help decision makers develop prevention strategies based on reliable evidence, the Contextualized Health Research Synthesis Program (CHRSP) identified and reviewed the best available scientific and economic evidence on the clinical and cost effectiveness of approaches that aim to reduce T2D incidence.
