Project 5-2035 Abstract

The central thesis of the ‘5-2035’ vision is that healthcare is an inalienable right as well a collective responsibility. In substance, ‘5-2035’ is a comprehensive health policy blueprint that aims to curb type II diabetes in Mauritius from its current 22% prevalence to 5% by the year 2035 using a multi-sectoral approach. Around this tangible goal, we have a larger ambition of improving the overall nefarious effects of diabetes-associated chronic noncommunicable diseases (CNCD are defined to include type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke), and the entire Mauritian healthcare system and quality of life within the next generation. Importantly, ‘5-2035’ aligns itself to be a driver in the Mauritian economic engine by creating an exportable pragmatic evidence-based community health model to the rest of the world. We will achieve the ‘5-2035’ goal by empowering local communities through a grassroots integrated community health into the solid health infrastructure already present in the island. Core mechanisms towards achieving ‘5-2035’ we will employ are:
  1. promotion of national unity and social justice by making the ‘5-2035’ endeavor our ‘Man to the Moon’ target;
  2. the SEED-SCALE (Self-Evaluation for Effective Decision-making + System for Communities to Adapt Learning and Expand) model of sustainable community-based human development;
  3. investment in human potential and enabling existing institutions to grow with the project so we create buy-in from stakeholders in a fiscally-responsive manner;
  4. focus on public-private partnerships to create a cadre of socially-conscious national and international entrepreneurs to spread the message of ‘5-2035’ in the country and the rest of the world, and
  5. focus on pragmatism and frugal innovation.
