Chronic diseases such as diabetes are among the most common, costly health issues of today – and impose an increasing economic burden on health care systems worldwide. Global health expenditure on diabetes is expected to reach at least USD 490 billion by 2030 – with diabetes accounting for an estimated 12% of global health expenditure in 2010.

This report explains how to prevent some of these costs by enabling patients to manage the disease themselves.
