Diabetes is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States contributing to more than 224,000 deaths each year. An estimated 14.6 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with diabetes and an estimated 6.2 million people have undiagnosed diabetes. The Division of Diabetes Translation provides funding to health departments of States and territories to develop, implement, and evaluate systems-based Diabetes Prevention and Control Programs (DPCPs). DPCPs are population-based, public health programs that design, implement and evaluate public health prevention and control strategies that improve access to and quality of care for all, and reach communities most impacted by the burden of diabetes (e.g., racial/ethnic populations, the elderly, rural dwellers and the economically disadvantaged). Support for these programs is a cornerstone of the DDT’s strategy for reducing the burden of diabetes throughout the nation. The Diabetes Control Program is authorized under sections 301 and 317(k) of the Public Health Service Act [42 U.S.C. sections 241 and 247b(k)].
