Spain, in 2016, had an estimated population of 46.5m. The nation has long being concerned about its ageing population and this is expected to continue with low fertility rates being a dominant feature over the next two decades. By 2050 42% of the population will be 65 years and older, some 15.2m persons.
Alongside the ageing population, diabetes prevalence is increasing – with the most recent statistics reporting 3.5m people living with the condition and an estimated 670,000 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.
