Ethiopian Diabetes Association (EDA)

Ethiopia, which is one of the developing nations, is at a risk of increased diabetes incidence. In Ethiopia, the number of deaths attributed to diabetes reached over 21,000 in 2007 (Diabetes Atlas, 3rd edition).

Community based studies are non-existent at the national level and hospitals may give figures of those who come for treatment and follow up.  As a result, the national estimate is based on neighboring countries with similar socio-economic situations and accordingly, 2%-3% of the population is estimated to live with diabetes in Ethiopia.

Generally, diabetes care is provided at general outpatient clinics or hospitals. The increase in the number of patients has led to the opening of specialized diabetes clinics at Black Lion Specialized and Yekatit 12 hospitals.  Several hospitals in the regions have also started diabetes care as a general outpatient service. The Gondar College of Medical Sciences has an outreach program to rural areas to provide diabetes care and its experiences in this regard can be taken as a national model. The Ethiopian Diabetes Association has also tried to share its part in diabetes prevention, care and treatment.
