In 1996, a national registry of the incidence of diabetes in children and adolescents was established, as a joint initiative between endocrinologists throughout Israel and the Israel Center for Disease Control. All centers for the treatment of children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes participate in the registry. The registry is conducted prospectively by means of an anonymous form which collects demographic data, clinical data, and details of diabetes morbidity in the patient's family. Quality control of data is performed by the staff of the Israel Center for Disease Control (ICDC), where the data is also processed. At the end of every year, a report is published (in Hebrew) summarizing the findings.
In some literature, this registry is also referred as "Israel Juvenile Diabetes Registry".
