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.

A stroke is a medical emergency affecting over one in four adults globally. It occurs when the blood supply to a part of the brain is cut off resulting in oxygen starvation, brain damage and loss of function. Stroke survivors can develop short and longterm complications, including, for example, mobility and speech issues. Knowing more about the prevention and symptoms of stroke could save millions of lives. For World Stroke Day, DigiCare4You wishes to raise awareness of the seriousness of strokes and the importance of prevention strategies.

DigiCare4You is a Horizon2020 project which aims to improve the early prevention and management of Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) and hypertension (HTN) via a community-based, person-centred solution, integrating both social and healthcare systems, supported by the use of digital tools. The project will also develop a roadmap to help policymakers assess the transferability, feasibility and effectiveness of the solution in their countries.
