This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

In a bid to encourage blood sugar monitoring and ultimately reduce the incidence of diabetes, Mauritius has announced that its 2006-07 budget will include measures to waive taxes on glucometers and testing strips. The government is running a public awareness campaign to focus on the prevention of lower-limb amputations, which are a common result of undiagnosed and untreated diabetes. The country acknowledges having the world's highest incidence of the condition, with one in five of the population (1.22 million in 2003) affected.
