The aim of this review is to summarize the contextual, clinical and health system challenges to the delivery of health care for diabetes in Africa. Planners need to allocate sufficient resources in a context where resources for health in general are insufficient. Choices need to be made between different options for health care within this context and mechanisms are required to facilitate the implementation of the selected options and ensure that quality of care is maintained. © 2003 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
