This is an evaluation that aims to:

1) describe what is currently being done by the various stakeholders/entities with respect to diabetes prevention;

2) identify if these services are accessed by the community, any problems encountered by those delivering the services and encountered by the community, as well as suggestions from both

of these group for service improvement; and

3) provide a set of realistic and feasible recommendations that reflects the opinions of service providers, the community and the evaluators towards improved diabetes prevention.

The goal of the evaluation is to establish if programs/initiatives/services currently being provided for diabetes prevention at the community level are successful with respect to both performance and community satisfaction. This will be done by conducting the evaluation at both the clinic and community levels, as well as prioritizing participation from all relevant stakeholders. The evaluation will describe the services and programs currently provided in Waskaganish to prevent diabetes at the community and clinic levels, as well as provide a set of recommendations for future program development.
