Diabetes mellitus is a major cause of mortality and morbidity among Palestinians; however, no data is available about the prevalence of complications of diabetes or the level of control among diabetes patients in Palestine. This project aims at estimating the prevalence of selected complications, risk factors  and the level of control. It was conducted on a sample of 500 diabetes patients in the ministry of health, United Nations Relief and Works Agency and Palestinian Medical Relief Society major clinics in Ramallah between February and June 2012. Patients were interviewed at these clinics by a trained fieldworker using a structured questionnaire. Anthropometric measurements and lab tests were be taken to the patients. Expected outcomes include: articles in peer reviewed journals, policy brief and reports.
