Study populations

Uganda, in 2015, had an estimated population of 80m with 48% under the age of 15 and only 3% were 65 years and older.

By 2050, the nation’s population will increase to 101m with a decrease in the younger age cohort (36%) and an increase in those aged 65 years and older (4%).

Alongside the ageing population, diabetes prevalence is increasing – with the most recent statistics reporting 400,600 people living with the condition and an estimated 285,800 undiagnosed cases.
