As a leading risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes could lead to serious health complications if proper and adequate care was not available. Lack of access to essential health services and medicines for type 2 diabetes has been proven to hamper improvement in controlling disease outcomes. This study aims to assess the availability of services for type 2 diabetes in the primary care provided by health centers and their characteristics of service inputs.</p> <p><strong>Methods</strong></p> <p>This study used an existing dataset obtained from health center staff joining a national training on “Health center preparedness in response to COVID-19 spread in the community” at the National Institute of Public Health from 19 October to 01 December 2020. Data related to the availability of type 2 diabetes services and the associated characteristics of service inputs were extracted for the descriptive analysis.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong></p> <p>The dataset collected in 2020 was composed of information from 1,157 (95%) of the total 1,221 health centers in Cambodia. Among the participating health centers (n=1,157), 223 (19%) reported currently providing type 2 diabetes services at their facilities, 261 (23%) currently having anti-diabetic medicines, 740 (64%) currently having supporting infrastructure, 235 (20%) having at least one staff member ever received training about type 2 diabetes, and 320 (28%) having ever provided community education about type 2 diabetes.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions</strong></p> <p>This study indicates the limited availability of type 2 diabetes services at public primary care facilities in the Cambodian health system. The findings could be informative for health service planning for type 2 diabetes at the health center level.</p> Vannarath Te, Sokvy Ma, Phalla Hok, Sereyraksmey Long, Chhorvann Chhea, Por Ir Copyright (c) 2022 Cambodia Journal of Public Health (CJPH) of the School of Public Health at NIPH Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0000
