Welcome to the DigiCare4You Community

DigiCare4You is an innovative, easy-to-implement, low-cost, and sustainable solution which will help build healthcare services’ capacity and strengthen countries’ primary care systems as well as address the specific needs and preferences of people at risk of T2D and/or hypertension, as they develop healthy habits and engage in activities supporting their well-being. Aiming to be a fully scalable and transferable solution, a roadmap will be developed to help policymakers  assess the feasibility and effectiveness of the DigiCare4You solution in their regions/countries and promote people-centred care and integrated health services in Europe and beyond.

One of the themes of the European Public Health Week 2023 highlights the importance of preventing and controlling chronic diseases. 

T2D and HTN represent a major burden on individuals and society and are the root causes of other chronic conditions.  Currently 537 m people worldwide live with diabetes (61m in Europe) and this number is forecast to rise to 643 m by 2030 (67m in Europe).  Additionally, 1.23 billion people live with hypertension. Early screening and a focus on preventative measures is key to tackling these conditions.
