World Diabetes Day 2015 [ENDED]

World Diabetes Day, on the 14th November every year, has grown from humble beginnings to become a globally-celebrated event to increase awareness about diabetes.

World Diabetes Day was jointly introduced by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). The global diabetes awareness campaign was introduced amidst concern over an escalating diabetes epidemic. November 14th is a significant date in the diabetes calendar because it marks the birthday of the man who co-discovered insulin, Frederick Banting. Banting discovered insulin in 1922, alongside Charles Best. More than 80% of diabetes deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. WHO projects that diabetes will be the 7th leading cause of death in 2030.

The World Diabetes Day event aims to:

  • Encourage governments to implement and strengthen policies for the prevention and control of diabetes and its complications.
  • Disseminate tools to support national and local initiatives for the prevention and management of diabetes and its complications.
  • Illustrate the importance of evidence-based education in the prevention and management of diabetes and its complications.
  • Raise awareness of the warning signs of diabetes and promote action to encourage early diagnosis.
  • Raise awareness of and promote action to reduce the main modifiable risk factors for type 2 diabetes.
  • Raise awareness and promote action to prevent or delay the complications of diabetes.
