Abstract

Diabetes is a condition of particular importance to the Maltese population. Currently, 10% of the Maltese population has diabetes, compared with 2-5% of the population in the majority of Malta's neighbouring European nations (Rocchiccioli et al, 2005). The high prevalence of diabetes results in nearly one out of every four deaths of Maltese people occurring before the age of 65 years (Cachia, 2003). In this article we explore the possible contributions of the unique Maltese culture to the epidemiology, we hope that some lessons can be taken when attempting educational interventions in people of differing backgrounds.
