Division of Diabetes Treatment and Prevention - Leading the effort to treat and prevent diabetes in American Indians and Alaska Natives


About Us

Welcome to the Division of Diabetes Treatment and Prevention website.

The IHS Division of Diabetes provides information and resources to strengthen clinical, public health, and community approaches to diabetes treatment and prevention throughout the United States. The Division also plays a central role in managing and supporting the Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) by:

  • Translating and disseminating the latest science to Indian Health Service, Tribal, and Urban Indian health programs across the country;
  • Providing training on diabetes science and SDPI program management;
  • Facilitating the sharing of information and expertise among health care professionals and Tribal communities;
  • Supporting grant program efforts to use best practices in diabetes treatment and prevention; and,
  • Providing essential clinical data for program planning and improvement through the Diabetes Care and Outcomes Audit.

Above all, the Division continues to build strong partnerships with American Indian and Alaska Native communities in a common effort to turn the tide of the diabetes epidemic. Together, we are working to create a healthier future for American Indian and Alaska Native people.
