Focus on the frontline - the Chinese Diabetes Society

China is at the epicentre of the global diabetes epidemic. Our diabetes population is now the world’s largest: more than 92 million people. Diabetes prevalence in this country, at 9.7%, is among the highest – far higher than the world average of 6.4%. Even more worryingly, nearly 150 million people in China are at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
