Abstract

Background: This is a summarizing discussion of the series. Six pieces of articles have been presented including two pilot studies and survey of the perception of healthcare professionals. The other four presented case observations from the different levels of health facilities.
Methods: In this summary, a comparison between the four grades of facilities is presented with focus on completeness of patients’ contact details and clinical information regarding basic anthropometric data that can be easily collected anywhere.
Results: It shows evidence that capacity and scope of diabetes services are in tandem i.e., least at the primary level and most at the tertiary facility. It also shows albeit anecdotal that the private general practices may be doing best in what they have capacity to do.
Conclusions: The capacity for diabetes service in all tiers of the healthcare system. The need to advocate for diabetes register as a means to improve quality of service is highlighted.
