Updated: Feb 29

Chronic Care International (CCI) launched a new iteration of its website in February that aims to give more context to its mission by incorporating more stories, more compelling images, and more urgency, to contribute, while providing a framework for CCI’s unique model of disease care in developing countries.
“For over a decade, we’ve combined healthcare expertise, teamwork, and a passion for service to transform diabetes care for some of the world’s poorest citizens,” says Dr. Hans Dethlefs, president of Chronic Care International. “Our website tells our story and describes CCI's strategic approach to this global problem. None of the work would be possible without our donors.”

With its focus on diabetes and high blood pressure, two leading causes of preventable suffering and death, CCI’s U.S. team and local providers deliver low-cost medical care, self-care education, and crucial emotional support to patients, while cultivating self-reliance and independence. In addition, CCI trains local medical personnel to administer care and monitors health outcomes over time.

People in underserved communities in developing countries face not only the physical burden of the chronic diseases, but also the emotional and economic toll that diabetes and high blood pressure take on their lives, their families, and their communities. By fostering self-reliance within these communities, CCI works hand-in-hand with patients and their families to confront a chronic disease epidemic. According to the International Diabetes Foundation (IDF), three in four adults with diabetes live in low- and middle-income countries.

“We’re demonstrating that our data-driven, patient-centered model of disease care is scalable, and these stories will be important to inform our donors and prospective funders,” says Dr. Dethlefs. “The website provides a window into our evolving approach to prevent the suffering caused by diabetes.”
