Slovenia, in 2016, had an estimated population of just over 2m with 18% being over the age of 65 years and 15% under 15 years of age. By 2050, population projections suggest a decrease in the population and with it a significant change in the age distribution, 32% of the population will be over the age of 65.
Alongside the ageing population, diabetes prevalence is increasing – with the most recent statistics reporting 168,200 people living with the condition and an estimated 63,500 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.
