Improve Awareness and Management of Comorbid Depression and Diabetes

Raising awareness about the magnitude and severity of problems related to comorbidity of depression and diabetes.

African Nurse Training of Trainers Program (ANTP)

The African Nurse Training Program (ANTP) is organized by the International Council of Nurses (ICN) in collaboration with the Association for the Improvement of Mental Health Programs (AIMHP). ANTP is a ‘train-the-trainer’ program and is organized within the framework of the Diabetes and Depression (DDD) initiative. DDD is a collaboration involving several international organizations and is coordinated by the AIMHP.

ANTP aims to improve the awareness, recognition and management of comorbid depression and diabetes. This will reduce comorbid outcomes.

With the goal of improving the awareness, recognition and management of comorbid depression and diabetes, ANTP will provide international healthcare experts to support nurses in the above-mentioned African countries to meet this challenge.

The progam is composed of ten modules that ‘unpack’ the comorbid relationship between diabetes and depression and focus on assessment, clinical management, health education and the environment of health care.
