  The incidence of diabetes is rising across the world. This global problem significantly affects the economic and social development of the 21st century. Modern technologies penetrate into all spheres of medicine and the treatment of diabetes is no exception. These devices help patients to better control this disease. The aim of this study is to specify the advanced technologies used in medical devices for diabetes and verify patients’ attitude to these technologies. On the basis of this knowledge an approach for more effective use of these technologies for patients is proposed. To achieve the stated objective, a method of literature review and quantitative research were used. To verify the attitude to modern technologies the research question was formulated as follows: “do patients know the modern technical tools which can to control diabetes”. The research question was verified on the basis of responses from a questionnaire survey among 313 diabetic patients in the Czech Republic. The results of this research confirmed that the offer of diabetes applications was wide but the awareness of technology possibilities for diabetes patients in the Czech Republic is low.

  Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are becoming a global necessity to achieve milestones in a smarter and accurate way. The speed at which countries are developing is often associated to how they invest in science and technology. It is almost now impossible to expect a growth in the way citizens live if the governments do not think on new ways of fastening the flow of information, it’s control and the way it is distributed to citizens. The aim of this research is how those countries can benefit from ICTs as a strong pillar to take their economies to a next level. Although, the case study is focused significantly on the Republic of Rwanda, the same approach can be used as well to other countries in the same range of economic classification, probably with slight changes according to the respective country of application. The used method is qualitative and quantitative approaches of the descriptive methodology, whereby the researcher based on data got from answered questions by the monitoring and evaluation teams of both MYICT and National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda (NISR) to assess the effectiveness of Information and communication technologies as a perfect tool for economic growth in Rwanda.

  Dementia represents a significant burden for the economic systems of developed countries. The reason is an increasing trend of a number of elderly people aged 65 and 80 years and specifically these years are critical for the incidence of dementia since this disease rises with aging. The purpose of this study is to specify the economic burden of care of people with dementia in the area of formal and informal care. This study particularly focuses on the direct costs which include treatment, drugs, formal and informal care. The study concentrates on the European countries where the issue of aging population and provision of care about the people with dementia is very topical nowadays. This study also presents a case study, individual items of costs in one of the countries of central Europe-Czech Republic where the burden is expected to be higher than in many western countries. The methods include a method of literature review, analysis of web pages of day care centers and institutional facilities in the European countries with the purpose to obtain information about the costs of formal care. The costs specifications are based on Drummond’s methodology and the costs are divided into direct and indirect. The result shows that the treatment costs are 2,393.14 EUR, annual costs of formal care are 5,403 EUR on average and annual costs of informal care are 9,326.4 EUR in the Czech Republic.
