The type 2 diabetes clinical pathway is a standardized technical resource aimed at improving the quality and efficiency of health care for people with type 2 diabetes at the primary health care. It is based on the D Module of HEARTS, Diagnosis, and Management of Type 2 Diabetes. It summarizes diabetes care and its complications in a single instrument, integrating them with the cardiovascular prevention strategy.

PAHO provides technical support to Member States to develop the type 2 diabetes clinical pathway adapted to the local context. Its adoption allows for improved health outcomes, with benefits such as better metabolic control of diabetes, prevention and early diagnosis of diabetes-related complications, and better control of hypertension and cardiovascular risk. Its institutionalization ensures the continuity of these and other related benefits, contributing to a more robust and effective healthcare system.
