Learning from experience of community mobilisation to improve maternal and child health, we developed two distinct population based interventions to prevent and control diabetes within rural communities in Bangladesh. The first intervention was an mHealth health promotion strategy delivered to individual’s mobile phones. The second was a participatory community mobilisation intervention whereby community groups identified and addressed key threats to their health in their own communities. The interventions were evaluated using a three arm cluster-randomised controlled trial across 96 villages covering a population of approximately 125,000 individuals. This presentation will describe the development of these interventions, their implementation and impact.
