The prevalence of both Diabetes and Impaired Glucose Tolerance is expected to double over the next 25 years. Currently, over two-thirds of people living with diabetes on the continent are undiagnosed being the highest worldwide. With Africa spending a meagre 0.5% of global health expenditure on diabetes, it is imperative that the Africa Diabetes community come together to generate innovative home-grown solutions for optimal prevention, detection and management of diabetes on the continent.
