Abstract

The aims of the researchers were to develop an NCD prevention program including training for professionals who implement such programs, and to evaluate its effects on diabetes mellitus knowledge, hypertension knowledge, self-efficacy, and self-care in community-dwelling, middle-aged Laotian women. The study design was a randomized controlled trial. The study sample was composed of Laotian women aged 40 to 59years living in Vientiane, Laos who fulfilled more than one diagnostic criterion for metabolic syndrome. This study provides a guide for low- and middle-income countries to develop future health capacity building programs for NCD prevention in middle-aged women.
