- Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute Launched as New Research Suggests Improved Patient Education May Play Key Role in Halting Escalating Disease in the EMEA Region

Experts have predicted that by 2025, the number of people with diabetes will have increased by 20 per cent within Europe, 80 percent within Eastern Mediterranean and Middle Eastern populations and 80 percent within the African patient population(1).
