Study populations

Egypt, in 2016, had an estimated population of 93.2m with 33% under the age of 15 years (47m) and 5% over the age of 65 years (8.1m). By 2050, the population distribution will have changed considerably with 10% (15.7m) of the population being in the older age group, even though younger people will still represent over a quarter of the population.

Alongside the ageing population diabetes prevalence is increasing – with the most recent statistics reporting 7.8m people living with the condition and by 2040, the estimate is 15.1m. There are an estimated 3.2m undiagnosed cases.
