Global Diabetes Prevalence

EDM number 892 in 2014-15, proposed by Keith Vaz on 18/03/2015.
Categorised under the topic of Diseases.

That this House is deeply alarmed by a recent study by the University of East Anglia, which found that diabetes affects around 382 million people worldwide, a figure expected to rise to 592 million by 2035; is concerned that the consistently increasing economic impact of this disease on low, middle and high income countries is having extremely negative consequences for public health services; notes that two-thirds of type 2 diabetes cases are now diagnosed in low-income and middle-income nations, with particularly high levels of prevalence in Mexico, India, China and Egypt; and calls on the Government to include diabetes-related public health measures in relevant international development programmes.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
