This site is intended to share information about the intervention, outcomes, and learnings from the projects involved in Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Together on Diabetes™ initiative with public health practitioners and interested members of the public.  All of the case studies are presented in a similar format with descriptions of the project’s context and partners, planning process, unique elements of intervention, results, learnings, efforts at sustainability and publications or materials associated with the project.  Each Together on Diabetes™ project is summarized on its own case study page and a PDF of the full case study is available for download.

Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation

The mission of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation is to promote health equity and improve the health outcomes of populations disproportionately affected by serious diseases and health conditions. Together on Diabetes™ is the flagship philanthropic program of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation. Consistent with the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation’s mission to promote health equity and improve health outcomes, this initiative targets adult populations disproportionately affected by type 2 diabetes.

KU Work Group for Community Health and Development

The KU Work Group for Community Health and Development serves as the national evaluators for the Together on Diabetes ™ initiative.  The KU Work Group supports community health and development through collaborative research and evaluation, teaching and training, and technical support and capacity building.  The KU Work Group has developed widely used capabilities for community-based participatory research and for building capacity for community work, including through the Community Tool Box. Recognition of these capabilities led to official designation in 2004 as a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre.
