The VAPREVENTION project addresses the scientific challenge of preventing Type 2 Diabetes and aims to achieve two key objectives. Firstly, it seeks to create a unique digital intervention that focuses on the prevention of type 2 diabetes in high-risk adults. This intervention will be grounded in evidence and theory, and it will employ a person-centered approach. Secondly, the project will evaluate the effectiveness, implementation, and cost-effectiveness of this intervention in real-world contexts.
