A Personal Note From The Founding President


My friends and family inspired me to turn despair into resolve for the memory of my parents and for all those who have anguished over the pain and loss that CNCD silently bring.  It is too late for my parents, but it is my conviction that it is not too late for the present and future generations in Mauritius, and around the world, to turn the tide against CNCD.

The 5-2035 vision is the resulting labor of love, the aspiration to decrease type II diabetes to 5% prevalence in Mauritius by the year 2035 by empowering communities, working together with experts and the government.  To make the 5-2035 vision possible, we need your help, one individual making a difference in one community at a time.

We invite you into advocacy and action to beat down CNCD for ourselves and our children in togetherness.  Our motto for the 5-2035 Global Foundation for Community Health is concordia res parvae crescunt: unity makes strength.  If we work together, within a generation, we will defeat the threat of CNCD in Mauritius as a model for the world.  Please join us.
