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.

Project News

Across the world, 537 million people were living with diabetes in 2021, of whom 61 million in Europe, and this figure is anticipated to increase to 643 by 2030 (67 million in Europe).

An estimated 1.28 billion adults aged 30-79 years worldwide have hypertension (HTN). HTN is also approximately twice as prevalent in people living with diabetes as in the general population.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently conducted an assessment of physical inactivity at the global, regional and country levels.  Regular physical activity enhances both mental and physical health for people of all ages, and is also a key behavioural factor that can contribute to preventing and managing noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as heart disease and diabetes.

Following each rotating EU Council presidency, the Council adopts formal statements summarising the outcomes and priorities of the presidency and future policy priorities. These conclusions, though not legally binding, hold significant weight in coordinating policies among member states(MS) and guiding the European Commission (EC).

DigiCare4You 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 also aims to assess the scalability and transferability of the DigiCare4You solution, within the implementation countries and beyond. To support the development of a scalable and transferable solution, an International Stakeholder Advisory Board (ISAB) has been set up.
