Module 6: Funding and Sustainability of Rural Diabetes Programs
Shifting health priorities, changes in local economies, and unpredictable availability of funding sources are common issues facing diabetes programs and require careful sustainability planning for success.
Sustainability is important to address early in the planning and implementation stages of diabetes prevention and management programs. This module discusses the importance of planning for sustainability, key sustainability strategies, and potential funders. For a general overview of how to plan for the sustainability of your program, see Planning for Sustainability in the Rural Community Health Toolkit.
