LearnforLife® enables the empowerment of individuals to engage in e-learning processes through specially designed e-packages. It has been developed along several tracks, of which relate to the objective of empowering individuals by allowing them to gain information and developing their ability to judge how to cope with life-style issues so as to improve their personal long-term well-being as well as reduce human suffering and societal cost.

The LearnforLife Programmes address "people" in a general sense by targeting individuals who belong to certain risk groups. The aim is to induce them to make slight adjustments in their everyday routines so as to avoid the gradual accumulation of effects that ultimately could lead to a major health disorder.

The prevention agenda has been complemented by a programme which offers a mere treatment that targets individuals who have a developed certain health disorders and been diagnosed. The objective here is to offer a treatment including individual coaching to understand their problem and to empower them to take measures to change. The treatment uses also a range of technical devices which will act as facilitators in the process.

The LearnforLife programmes are in various stages of development. A number of activities have been introduced in Europe, the United States, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Several programmes are in an advanced preparatory stage and individual countries are engaged in the development work. Some governments have made adjustments to institutions or policies to help meet the requirements for the implementation process. The LearnforLife programmes are thus prepared for large-scale deployment, in a range of areas spanning the health domain, in regard to road safety, and environmental challenges.

The LearnforLife programmes require close collaboration between the methodology and content provision aspects of the activities. Other key factors have to do with the technical platform, research and evaluation, and the engagement by local stakeholders. It is critical that the programmes can be continuously adjusted to context-specific cultural and social conditions.

Diabetes prevention1) Type II Diabetes prevention

This programme targets various segments of a population with special focus on diet, physical activity and group dynamics. It is under development in several countries in the GCC.

For instance, a number of studies have pointed to the paramount importance of physical activity for combating diabetes (Haskell and Blair, 2009). So far, however, most health-care systems have proven largely ill-equipped to take such factors into account. An important part of the problem is the failure to come up with measures capable of enacting effective preventive action.

Safe Child Birth2) Safe Child Birth

Targeting pregnant women in rural areas, the focus of this programme is on preventing transmission of HIV from Mother to Child. It further provides incentives for mothers to plan ahead and invest in their own health and well-being as well as the future of her baby.

Non-Activity5) Mandolean treatment

As the LearnforLife® activities addressing diabetes prevention identify a large number of individuals who are in need of professional treatment to combat obesity and pre-diabetic disorders, PCS has entered into collaboration with the Mando Group at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. The Mandolean treatment introduces incentives that are complementary to those of LearnforLife in enacting behavioural adjustment. The Mandolean treatment has an exemplary record of curing eating disorders and is approved by the FDA in the United States.
