Evaluation of SALT-CLCP for diabetes and hypertension management in India

The attached Abridged HealthRise project report summarizes the main results of the recent evaluation of the SALT-CLCP interventions for Non-Communicable Diseases (Diabetes & Hypertension) carried out in Udaipur and Shimla (India). 210325-HealthRise%20RICPHI%204-pager.pdf

We are particularly happy to share that report with all Constellation friends and beyond, as it highlights the significant changes inducted by the SALT on behaviours of individuals and communities related to medications compliance and dietary and physical habits. It also shows a strong association between the application of the SALT-CLCP methodology and improved metabolic control of Diabetes and Hypertension.

In spite of the reduced length of interventions (6 months) and the difficult working conditions of the facilitators – Covid-19 lockdown during the last 4 months – such significant impact for patients confirms the importance of creating ownership of the issues among patients and facilitators (Outreach Workers and ASHA in that case) as agents of change. It also confirms the power of the SALT linked with the first steps of the CLC Process.

That operational research evaluation was performed by the Ramaiah International Centre for Public Health Innovations (RICPHI), in collaboration with MAMTA – Health Institute for Mother and Child, the Catholic Health Association of India (CHAI) and The Constellation. The work was done in the framework of the HealthRise India Transition Grant supported by the Medtronic Foundation.

One more artillery in the armament of CLCP, to take on the cynics of CLCP!

Accordingly, I wish that every community of ours, document along such lines so that we add to this armamentarium of evaluations of CLCP. 

For, only evaluations provide the proof of the pudding, that CLCP works in communities, which the cynics can never deny!
