Due to the alarming rise in Type 2 diabetes, nations around the world are beginning to take a closer look at how to combat this costly yet manageable disease.  This is especially true in Asia (including the Middle East & India), Africa, and Central & South America.  Leaders in these regions of the world are looking at preventative measures and ways to improve the lives of those with Type 2 diabetes. In addition, most of these leaders are concerned with the associated rising healthcare costs.

The primary goal of The Root Cause, Inc. is to assist government and local leaders in their efforts to expand education about Type 2 diabetes, promote more effective diabetes management and improve quality of life for those suffering from this disease.  All of the above will provide cost savings for governments and/or other entities that bear the accelerating cost of unmanaged diabetes.
