As in many other countries, the incidence of diabetes is increasing in France, where it has virtually doubled over the past twenty years, rising from 8 cases per 100,000 children in 1988 to an estimated 15 cases per 100,000 in 2007. In individuals under the age of 20 years, between 2006 and 2009, the mean annual increase in the prevalence of treated diabetes varied between 2.4% and 3.9% according to age group and gender. The Entred-Enfant study was initiated following the conclusions of the expert assessment of epidemiological monitoring of paediatric diabetes, which InVS (Institut de veille sanitaire - French Institute for Public Health Surveillance) entrusted to INSERM (Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale French national health and medical research institute) in 2007. The aim of Entred-Enfant was to gain knowledge concerning the terms and quality of medical care for diabetic children in France. Entred-Enfant is the first study based on a representative sample of children treated for diabetes in France. (R.A.)
