Abstract: This is a summary regarding the epidemiological survey which was conducted in Malta in 1981 by the Department of Health in collaboration with Governments of Yugoslavia and Belgium and the World Health Organization (WHO), which confirms that diabetes mellitus is a major health problem in Malta. A description of the study subjects and methods used in the survey is outlined, together with the relative derived outcomes. Results show that although the etiology of diabetes in Malta remains unclear, the survey suggest a rather strong environmental influence, in addition to possible genetic susceptibility.
