First: MOH annual reports, and surveillances programs:
Endocrinology and diabetic data are systematically collected from MOH hospitals. However they report the number of visits, not the number of cases. This information is available in hardcopies from the year 1996 to April 2005. Additionally, disaggregated data of various diseases are provided by health centers. The data, includes age, sex, and geographic location, is available at the following link from the years 1999 to 2003: http://www.moh.gov.jo/ic/phcEn.html
Moreover, data concerning pregnant women with diabetes (Gestational Diabetes) is available from the year 2003 to April 2005. Link (in English): http://www.moh.gov.jo/ic/jsp/t_num.jsp?rep=Prenatal_15&refP=PrenatalEn.html
