Mexico pledges universal diabetes screening

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

"The universal provision of diabetes screening": this is the aim of the Mexican health ministry as it struggles to tackle a condition that is responsible for almost 50,000 deaths a year and affects 10.7% of the population in the 20-69 age group. In the over-50s, the prevalence of the condition exceeds 20%. In 2002, the diabetes programme extended screening to around 15 million people. The government aims to surpass the 20 million mark by 2006.
