New resource on Diabetes from Hesperian Health Guides

31 July, 2018

Dear Hifa Colleagues:

I'm writing to share information about a new resource from Hesperian Health Guides that could be useful for your programs.

Diabetes: Beyond the Basics disentangles the physical, medical and social issues that make the diabetes epidemic so difficult to deal with. It provides information about diabetes signs and symptoms, diagnosis and management as well as strategies for working in the community to increase awareness. The booklet also includes discussion questions to facilitate health educator training sessions or enrich meetings for diabetes self-help groups.

To better facilitate the booklet's use in workshops and community groups, bulk discounts are available for orders of ten or more copies. For more information, please visit or send me an email at
