Diabetes country profiles 2016

In order to combat the global epidemic of diabetes and noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), it is imperative to create a baseline for monitoring trends and to assess the progress of countries in addressing the epidemic.

The aim of the diabetes country profiles is to synthesize, in one reference document, the national status of diabetes prevention and control. Each profile includes data on diabetes prevalence and trends; mortality; risk factors; availability of diabetes country plans; monitoring and surveillance; primary prevention and treatment policies and availability of medicines, basic technologies and procedures. The data presented in the profiles are derived from several sources. For details on these please see the explanatory notes.

The profiles can be accessed as PDF documents below.
