The intervention is targeting vulnerable citizens with type 2 diabetes throughout Aarhus Municipality, who need help to prevent late-stage complications as a result of their diabetes. The intervention is split into four phases of three months' duration, which provide the citizens with knowledge, skills and relationships that support them in achieving a better quality of life. To ensure that the citizens maintain the new, healthier habits, there is a follow-up period of two years. The intervention includes both individual and group-based interventions and includes, for example, individual conversations, training, cooking, mentoring, other activities and family-oriented activities.

Outcome metrics

  • At least 36% of the citizens who are screened for the intervention (162 of the 450 recruited citizens) complete the intervention and show up for control measurements after 12, 24 and 36 months.
  • At least 31% of the citizens who complete the intervention (50 of 162 completing citizens) reduce their long-term blood sugar (HbA1c, measured in mmol/mol) by a minimum of 8.5% 12, 24 and 36 months after the citizen begins the intervention (individual success measure).
  • The citizens who complete the intervention (162 citizens) achieve an average reduction in their long-term blood sugar (HbA1c, measured in mmol/mol) of a minimum of 8.5% 36 months after starting the intervention (collective success measure). This corresponds to a blood sugar reduction of 6.8 points on average per citizen.

INDIGO data are shared for research and policy analysis purposes. INDIGO data can be used to support a range of insights, for example, to understand the social outcomes that projects aim to improve, the network of organisations across projects, trends, scales, timelines and summary information. The collaborative system by which we collect, process, and share data is designed to advance data-sharing norms, harmonise data definitions and improve data use. These data are NOT shared for auditing, investment, or legal purposes. Please independently verify any data that you might use in decision making. We provide no guarantees or assurances as to the quality of these data. Data may be inaccurate, incomplete, inconsistent, and/or not current for various reasons: INDIGO is a collaborative and iterative initiative that mostly relies on projects all over the world volunteering to share their data. We have a system for processing information and try to attribute data to named sources, but we do not audit, cross-check, or verify all information provided to us. It takes time and resources to share data, which may not have been included in a project’s budget. Many of the projects are ongoing and timely updates may not be available. Different people may have different interpretations of data items and definitions. Even when data are high quality, interpretation or generalisation to different contexts may not be possible and/or requires additional information and/or expertise.
