Abstract

The prevalence of diabetes in the region is clearly increasing, and so is the burden of this chronic disease and its complications. The Philippines reports a true prevalence of about 7.2% among adults aged 20 years and older in 20081;  in the 2010 International Diabetes Federation Diabetes Atlas, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore report 4.6%, 10.9% and 12.7% prevalence rates, respectively.2 These rates are consistent with global estimates, and considering the increasing populations in these countries, the absolute numbers are certainly staggering.
