Portugal, in 2016, had an estimated population of 10.3m with 13% under the age of 15 years and 21% over the age of 65 years. By 2050, it is expected that one in three people will be in the older age groups (35%, 3.2m) and 14% under the age of 15 years.
Alongside the ageing population, diabetes prevalence is increasing – with the most recent statistics reporting 1m people living with the condition and an estimated 397,900 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.
