Washington alone had case of approximately 425,000 residents being diagnosed diabetes while 172,000 had not been diagnosed diabetes, and 1.8 million. As result, healthcare policymakers, researchers and scholars has been busy analyzing situations and factors strategies which can use used mitigate the spread of this disease among populace. The most common strategy proposed by these professionals the reduction of the annual number of new cases of diagnosed diabetes in the population. Therefore, this paper will conduct SWOT analysis to determine the effectiveness of the strategy.
In conclusion, the paper has established that diabetes is one of the major causes of death in United States and UK. In 2012, the study found out that the US alone 9.3% of its population suffering from diabetes. This research also found out that different demographic segments have different level of diabetes. Older people with over 65 years are likely to contract diabetes. Similarly, people with low education and low income level are at risk of developing this disease As such, the paper proposed reduction the annual number of new cases of diagnosed diabetes in the population as the most effective policy in mitigating this disease. The policy has several strengths and weaknesses in equal measures. Therefore, the government must maximize on the strengths to minimize the identified weakness which might affect its implementation.
