As the demographic and epidemiological transitions continue to unfold into the second and third decades of the 21st century, health systems face the challenge of how best to promote healthy ageing, including reducing the complications associated with complex chronic diseases like diabetes. About 80% of people with diabetes live in low-to-middle income countries, with the largest increase in absolute numbers in East and South Asia.
This colloquium showcases research from an international collaboration studying “value for money” in controlling chronic disease, focusing on the case of diabetes. Presenters from ministries of health and distinguished universities throughout East Asia will provide brief summaries of the policy challenges their health systems face and how we are together assessing net value of diabetes management in the diverse institutional contexts of Beijing, Zhejiang, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, Korea, the US, and the Netherlands.
