About the Asian Diabetes Prevention Initiative (ADPI)

The Asian Diabetes Prevention Initiative (ADPI) aims to create and spread an effective public health message that can counter the rising rates of diabetes among Asian populations. The site includes the latest research and strategies for Asians on how to monitor risk of diabetes and prevent the disease by maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle. It is a joint collaboration between the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Department of Nutrition and the National University of Singapore, Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health. Launched in 2014 by both schools, the ADPI accepts no advertising or commercial sponsorship, nor does it endorse any particular products. Expert faculty from both schools and other invited experts review all content before it is posted on the site, and all content is re-reviewed regularly.
