Singapore Institute for Clinical Sciences (A*STAR) aims to explore the potential of mHealth (mobile health)-enabled lifestyle interventions in multi-ethnic Asian Singaporeans as part of the nation’s effort to prevent noncommunicable diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes (T2D).
The overall goal of the HAPPY study (HArnessing human Potential and improving health sPan in women and children studY) is to reduce the burden of T2D and related metabolic disorders in an Asian population by focusing upon primary prevention of T2D.
Women with history of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) are more likely to develop T2D and associated complications in their life course. In view of the high prevalence of GDM in Singapore, the health and wellbeing of these Asian women and their children deserve a greater attention. We aim to conduct lifestyle intervention trials to examine the feasibility, efficacy and cost-effectiveness of the mHealth approach in preventing them from developing T2D in the future.
