Strategic Plan for the National Diabetes Control Program

In light of major changes in funding and further developments of core capacity and infrastructure of State diabetes control programs, there is a need to step back and form a collective vision of the National Diabetes Control Program. This vision will form the basis for the FY 1999-2000 National Diabetes Control Program announcement for cooperative agreement renewals.
