For the first time, Singapore’s Ministry of Health has organised a national Citizens Jury, in the hope of tackling diabetes. One in nine Singaporeans has diabetes, while three in 10 over the age of 60 have diabetes, reports Channel News Asia. The jury, which consists of 75 people from a variety of backgrounds, will work together to come up with ideas to help prevent or better manage diabetes. All the jury members are volunteers, and include diabetics, doctors and those who know nothing about the disease.
