The primary aim of this study was to determine the level of knowledge amongst members of the Orang Asli populations with regards to aetiology, clinical symptoms and associated risk factors related to diabetes mellitus of 3 different tribes living in 3 different socioeconomic settings; urban, semiurban and very remote in the deep jungles. We hypothesized that there will be a difference in the knowledge amongst indigenous populations living in three different socioeconomic conditions and most likely knowledge will be better in the semi-urbanized indigenous population.
