As an implementing partner, the Canvasback Wellness Centre, works in partnership with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education to deliver outcomes focused on addressing this disease. There is a need to develop capacity of nurses at the clinic and health workers on the island to enable them to provide greater diabetes care and prevention.
