Module 4: Implementation Considerations for Rural Diabetes Programs
This module presents cross-cutting implementation considerations for rural organizations implementing diabetes
prevention or management programs. There is no one-size-fits-all strategy for implementing a rural
community-based diabetes program. Each program should be tailored to address the specific geographic,

For considerations for implementing specific rural diabetes program models or approaches, see Module 2.
For a general overview of rural program implementation, see Implementing a Rural Community Health Program in
the Rural Community Health Toolkit.
