Medtronic Philanthropy has selected Abt Associates as the global implementation partner for a fiveyear effort to expand access to care for underserved populations living with diabetes and cardiovascular disease: the Global Access Initiative (GAI). To reach this goal, GAI aims to strengthen health systems by advancing policies, empowering patients and leveraging caregivers and frontline health workers to enable people living with chronic disease to successfully manage their condition in acute events and over the long term. This effort will involve local, innovative pilot/demonstration projects, stakeholder engagement and advocacy efforts in four target countries: Brazil, India, South Africa and the United States.
