Abstract

Abstract: Most nurses will not go to another county and provide healthcare education, but will care for patients from other countries and faiths who practice traditions that impact how they manage their illness. This author shares his experience in Mauritania, which provides an excellent example for understanding issues in cross-cultural diabetic education. Universal principles for cross-cultural health education are offered.
