The 2012-14 funding priorities under the CDS Community-Based Program are:

  1. Development, implementation and evaluation of tools and approaches for the early detection and/or management of pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes in Métis, First Nations and Inuit living outside their traditional communities, or;
  2. Development, implementation and evaluation of type 2 diabetes prevention tools and interventions that target overweight/obese children and youth at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
