Special Diabetes Program for Indians

Together, We Fight Diabetes


Congress established the Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) in 1997 as part of the Balanced Budget Act to address the growing epidemic of diabetes in American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) communities. The Special Diabetes Program for Type 1 Diabetes (SDP) was established at the same time to address the serious limitations in type 1 diabetes research resources. Together, these programs have become the nation's most strategic and comprehensive effort to combat diabetes.
