Turkey, in 2015, had an estimated population of 80m with 63% aged between 15 and 59 years of age and only 12.6% were 60 years and older. The nation’s population is projected to reach over 85m in 2023 and peak with 93m in 2050. At this time almost one in three will be 60 years of age or older.
Alongside the ageing population, diabetes prevalence is increasing – with the most recent statistics reporting 6.3m people living with the condition and an estimated 2.7m 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.
