Brief description Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is common in South Asian women, and many develop lifelong type 2 diabetes (T2DM) soon after delivery. Lifestyle change helps prevent T2DM, but we do not know how to introduce a sustainable service that will change lifestyles of young, busy and often poor women. We will test a unique intervention embedded within local health systems in 1414 women with GDM from 24 hospitals in South Asia, hoping to show that this intervention will prevent T2DM.
