Colombia, in 2015, had an estimated population of 48.8m with 12% aged 60 years and over and 25% under the age of 15 years. By 2050, the projected population is 55m and the proportion of older people will increase to 34%, that is every third person will be aged 60 years and over.
Alongside the ageing population, the prevalence of people with diabetes appears to be increasing – with the most recent statistics reporting 3m people living with diabetes and an estimated 1.2m undiagnosed cases.
