Contextualizing Evidence for Action on Diabetes in low-resource Settings: a Mixed-methods case study in Quito and Esmeraldas, Ecuador. The research this project proposes deals with one of the main health challenges in the 21st century worldwide, the relentless increase of diabetes. This increase is even greater in low- and medium-income countries, where three quarters of the people who currently suffer diabetes live. The disease is considered to be the cause of more than 80% of deaths due to noncommunicable diseases. Quito Esmeraldas
