Bold Idea 

Revolutionize diabetes care in Mexico by establishing a major chain of low-cost management clinics that support the 90 percent of diabetics in Mexico with limited access to treatment.

Summary 
Diabetes in Mexico is called "the disease of the rich," because current care alternatives are expensive, inconvenient, and out of reach for ninety percent of the population. By developing innovative evidence-based algorithms for diagnosis and disease management, and by creating a chain of low-cost diabetes clinics, Clinicas del Azucar is revolutionizing the way diabetes care is delivered in developing countries and for the fourteen million patients with diabetes in Mexico.
