Q.

Diabetes Statistics

Good day,

I hope someone can assist ... where can I find accurate statistics on the amount of people living with diabetes in SA - type 1 and 2. I will also need the demographics, genders and age groups. Reason being that I''m looking into a business venture to raise public consciousness on diabetes, especially in the youth.
