Project HOPE began working in India in 2007 in response to the country’s large and growing burden of diabetes.  With a large population and an estimated prevalence rate of 9 percent, India ranks second in the world for total number of persons affected by the illness.  In 2007 Project HOPE launched the first large-scale initiative in the country to train and educate health care professionals about diabetes.  The four-year, multi-million dollar collaborative program, which was called the India Diabetes Educator Project, trained more than 3,600 health professionals about best practices for diabetes prevention and management.

Building on the success of the India Diabetes Educator Project, Project HOPE launched a groundbreaking online diabetes education course in 2013.  The India Diabetes Educator E-Learning Program (IDEEL) is packaged as a self-paced, online learning program, which is enhanced by a minimum 15-day clinical internship under the guidance of an endocrinologist and a diabetes educator.  The IDEEL program aims to train 4,500 diabetes educators annually in India.
