Cooperative Agreements for State-Based Diabetes Control Programs and Evaluation of Surveillance Systems

Diabetes Prevention and Control Programs (DPCPs) are funded by the CDC's Division of Diabetes Translation to address the following national level goals:
1) Prevent diabetes.
2) Prevent the complications, disabilities, and burden associated with diabetes.
3) Eliminate diabetes-related
health disparities.
4) Maximize organizational capacity to achieve the National Diabetes Program goals.

DPCPs aim to achieve system and population-level change and, ultimately, to improve health outcomes by coordinating and leveraging the efforts of the statewide diabetes community.

They are responsible for establishing partnerships with key organizations in support of the national goals stated above, and for implementing and evaluating evidence-based interventions in three main areas: 1.

Intervention #1: Improve quality of clinical care for populations with greatest diabetes burden and risk to improve control of A1c, blood pressure, and cholesterol, and to promote tobacco cessation.

2.

Intervention #2: Increase access to sustainable self-management education and support services for populations with greatest diabetes burden and risk to improve control of A1c, blood pressure, and cholesterol, and to promote tobacco cessation.

3.

Intervention #3: Increase use of lifestyle change programs that have achieved CDC recognition (or pending recognition) to prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes among people at high risk.

Assist State and local health authorities and other health related organizations in controlling communicable diseases, chronic diseases and disorders and other preventable health conditions.

Provide specific health surveillance using telephone and multi-mode survey methodologies for the behaviors of the general population that contribute to the occurrences and prevention of chronic diseases, injuries and other public health threats.

The collection, analysis and dissemination of BRFSS data to state and territorial health department categorical programs is used for assessing trends, directing program planning, evaluating program priorities, developing policies and targeting relevant population groups.
