- Answered 14 Aug 2019 Conflict of interest declaration: None I’ve interpreted the question as ‘What is the quality of care of type 2 diabetics in the Middle East?’. I find this question difficult given that the Middle East is a vast area, covering over 15 countries and a population of nearly 400 million people. Also, within it there are areas of vast wealth and areas of significant deprivation. Interestingly, I found a few papers that explore the question: “Patients’ management of type 2 diabetes in Middle Eastern countries: review of studies”  and “Quality of diabetes care in low- and middle-income Asian and Middle Eastern countries (1993–2012) – 20-Year systematic review”  I have also created a search for PubMed which explores health care quality in diabetes within individual Middle Eastern Countries http://bit.ly/t2dm_ME This gives a number of results, some of which may be pertinent. However, I come back to my original concern with the question. But I hope this answer is of some help.
