South Pacific nations have the highest prevalence of diabetes in the world. As a result of this the United Nations reports that diabetes and other non-communicable diseases are one of the greatest threats to the regions development.

The 10,000 Toes campaign is committed to saving the lives and limbs of those affected. This project will:

Equip every South Pacific village with the skills and tools to conduct community health assessments for the early detection of diabetes. Likewise they can test for other, related chronic diseases.

Train and resource lifestyle coaches to implement programs to prevent, arrest and reverse Type 2 Diabetes in every village.

Finally improve the capacity of health professionals working in health systems across the South Pacific to manage diabetes.
