Canadian Diabetes Policy Database

The Canadian Diabetes Policy Database represents the first component of a larger project intended to document the implementation of proven cost-effective approaches to preventing, managing and treating chronic diseases across Canadian provinces and territories. This database considers health interventions that have proven cost-effective in both the Canadian context and throughout other OECD countries. It is designed to allow researchers, the public and policy makers from different provinces and territories to explore the range of health policies in Canada and learn about initiatives that have been implemented throughout the country.

Specifically, the data presented here explores a selection of policy interventions that address, either directly or indirectly, the prevention, management and treatment of Type-II Diabetes. In the near future, we plan to expand the range of policies examined to include interventions addressing other major chronic diseases such as Cardiovascular Diseases, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Cancers.

For a detailed account of how this data was compiled, please see our methodology section.

* All data on drug coverage is based on data compiled by the Canadian Diabetes Association and presented in the 2012 report “Diabetes: Canada at the Tipping Point“.
