Here at the Janssen Health Policy Centre
our mission is to raise awareness on issues impacting healthcare policy, build
consensus through dialogue, and shape recommendations for future policies
The Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) states have seen an extraordinary increase in diabetes prevalence rates during the past two decades, and rates are expected to reach 50% in some states during the next 10 years. In a Janssen-sponsored report, The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) outlines the devastating impact of diabetes in the region, analyses contributing factors, and investigates current initiatives to tackle the disease. In Diabetes in the Gulf: The Policy Challenge, the EIU provides GCC states with recommendations on adopting a co-ordinated, region-wide response, in order to halt prevalence rates and rally against the overwhelming increase of diabetes in the region.
