Who We Are

The 5-2035 Global Foundation for Community Health is an apolitical not-for-profit organization with a vision to help curb CNCD in Mauritius through the 5-2035 vision; as a signature goal, to decrease Type II Diabetes prevalence in the country to 5% by year 2035. Using grassroots efforts, we will create opportunities that empower communities to work with content experts and the government through our scientific, medical, social, political and philanthropic advocacy. We will enable export of 5-2035 learnings to the world.

The fundamental idea of our vision is that healthcare is an inalienable right as well as a collective responsibility. Currently, with over 500 volunteer adherents in over 15 countries and territories, we are working to better the lives of Mauritians and friends of Mauritius who are affected every day by diabetes and diabetes-related chronic non-communicable diseases.

Our Mission Relies on a Collective Effort.
