Heart Disease, Stroke, and Diabetes Data and Publications

The Washington State Diabetes Prevention and Control Program works with other chronic disease programs and the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) to define the burden of diabetes. This work informs and influences public health decision-making.

We monitor several data sources to track diabetes in Washington. We also measure progress on state and national objectives to guide program development. These sources inform this work.

Diabetes Epidemic and Action Report

The 2023 Washington State Diabetes Epidemic and Action Report (PDF) is a legislative report written in response to RCW 70.330.020. It is the result of a collaborative effort from the Washington State Department of Health, the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, and the Washington State Health Care Authority. This report is intended to inform the State Legislature and Governor about the current state of diabetes in Washington and provide action plans for battling diabetes with a range of actionable items for consideration by the legislature.

Everyone concerned about diabetes in Washington may find these reports valuable to inform and guide their priorities and work.
