No dedicated treatment facility.
Need 1500 clinic for the entire population
India and Bangladesh have multiple center
Other (Institutes, Associations etc.)
Imperial College of London Diabetes Center, UAE
Joslin Diabetes Center, USA
Based on a study conducted by Group of Doctors at Agha Khan University Karachi Pakistan in 2006
The annual mean direct cost for each person with diabetes was estimated to be Pakistani rupees 11,580 (US$ 197). Medicines accounted for the largest share of direct cost (46%), followed by laboratory investigations (32%).
This study concluded that substantial expenditure is incurred by people with diabetes; with the implication that resources could be saved by prevention, earlier detection and a reduction in diabetes morbidities and complications through improved diabetes care. Large scale and cost-effective prevention programs need to be initiated to maximise health gains and to reverse the advance of this epidemic.
