The discussion about the balance between population- and individual-level approaches to the prevention of diabetes is essentially an example of the contrast between a health promotion model and one more clinically focussed on disease prevention. It is imperative that there is a harmonisation of these two approaches, which can sometimes be erroneously presented as mutually exclusive alternatives. In reality, there needs to be the development of a balanced approach but to achieve this there is an important initial roadblock of narrowing the intellectual gulf between them.
