Improving prevention, monitoring and management of diabetes among ethnic minorities: contextualizing the six G’s approach
People from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups are known to have an increased risk of developing diabetes and face greater barriers to accessing healthcare resources compared to their ‘white British’ counterparts.
