In addition to exerting a negative impact on health, diabetes imposes a large economic burden on the national health care system. Correspondingly, it stresses national economies as well as individuals and their families. Even so, many interventions are available for reducing the burden of this disease that can be adopted in either clinical or public health settings. This chapter first briefly describes the economic burden of diabetes, and then focuses on the prioritization of different interventions based on the framework of cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA). It concludes with a summary and some implications for policy.

Keywords:   diabetes, intervention strategies, public health burden, economic burden
