Study populations

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.
