Research Background

- Diabetes mellitus has been a concern in Indonesia since the 1980s. It is one of the four major non-communicable diseases in Indonesia with the prevalence rate predicted to rise.

- Research has found that diabetes education improves glycaemiccontrol, increases the person's knowledge and positively changes their attitudes towards self-care management, which results in improved health outcomes.

- Several studies examined formal diabetes educational programs in Indonesia. The educational programs provided support and advice for people living with diabetes, as well as increasing their knowledge about diabetes and improving self-care management.

- Despite these achievements, none of these studies adequately provided a deep understanding of the process of providing health education to people living with diabetes in the Indonesian context. Moreover, there is very little evidence to describe and explain who provides the health education in Indonesia.
