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.

World Hypertension Day (WHD) is celebrated on May 17. Its purpose is to convey the need for awareness of hypertension and its complications, and provide information on its prevention, detection, and management. This year’s campaign theme is “Measure Your Blood Pressure Accurately, Control It, Live Longer”. It highlights that not only is knowledge of hypertension of significance but also that accuracy in blood pressure measurement is vital firstly to ensure early diagnosis and secondly to facilitate proper management to prevent the development of life-threatening complications.
