The population of Nauru was estimated to be 9976 in 2010, with about 35.6% below 15 years of age and around 1.3% 65 years and above.

As a result of an effective public health programme focusing on water and sanitation, there have been no recent infectious disease outbreaks, but noncommunicable diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and cancer, have become leading causes of morbidity and mortality, and obesity rates are very high.
