Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and its complications are the leading causes of death in most countries. This disease has negative impacts on individuals, families and healthcare systems. In 2021, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimated that, globally, 537 million adults aged 20 to 79 lived with diabetes. This figure is expected to rise to 783 million by 2045. It is estimated that 94% of the increase in the number of people living with diabetes will occur in low- and middle-income countries, where population growth is expected to be greater [1]. This Special Issue entitled “Burden of Disease Attributable to Type 2 Diabetes” seeks to explore differences in incidence, prevalence, mortality, premature mortality, morbidity, risk factor exposure and protective factors (individual, environmental and contextual) of T2D across regions, countries and at the subnational level. The papers resulting from this Special Issue may help to better understand the burden of T2D worldwide, and to identify gaps between countries, to help target public policy, adequately assign resources and implement measures for prevention. This Special Issue welcomes those works that explore the burden of this disease from different points of view, both health and economic and social.
