Middle East and North Africa

Diabetes report 2010 — 2045

The IDF Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region consists of 21 countries that have experienced massive social and economic changes. A total of 33 data sources from 17 countries were used to estimate diabetes prevalence in 20–79 year-old adults in the Region. Jordan, Pakistan and Sudan had national studies conducted within the past five years. Algeria, Jordan, Oman, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, State of Palestine, Sudan and United Arab Emirates had estimates based on oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT). Diabetes prevalence for the remaining countries may be underestimated. The MENA Region has studies of type 1 diabetes incidence data in the 0–19 age-group covering over half the countries in the Region (12 countries).
