Poland, in 2016, had an estimated population of 37.9m with 15% both over the age of 65 years and under 15 years. By 2050, it is expected that almost one in three people will be in the older age groups (31%, 10.2m) and only 12% will be under the age of 15 years.
Alongside the ageing population, diabetes prevalence is increasing – with the most recent statistics reporting 2.2m people living with the condition and an estimated 847,500 undiagnosed cases.
The DR Barometer Community is a growing multidisciplinary network of thought leaders and organizations who are working together to address gaps in diabetes patient care. Join today to help improve vision health outcomes among people living with diabetes.
