World Diabetes Day 2019: Protect your familyNovember 14, 2019
November 14th is World Diabetes Day!
The World Diabetes Day is a global occasion in which people with diabetes, health professionals, diabetes advocates, media, the general public and government organizations spread the world to raise awareness and fight this disease.
What is the World diabetes Day?
The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) started World Diabetes Day in 1991 in response to the escalating health threat posed by diabetes.
It has since grown to become a globally celebrated event and an official United Nations (UN) awareness day. It is now the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign.
Thousands of local campaigns, activities, screenings, meetings and more take place every year, all helping to raise awareness of a condition that currently affects over 420 million people, with many more at risk.
World Diabetes Day aims to:
- Be the leading platform to promote diabetes advocacy efforts
- Promote the importance of taking coordinated and concerted actions to confront diabetes as a serious global health threat
- Draw attention to the key issues and keep diabetes firmly in the global public and political spotlight
This year, the theme for diabetes awareness month and World Diabetes Day is Family and Diabetes with ‘Protect your family’.
This year, the International Diabetes federation decides to highlight the impact of diabetes on families. In every family, there is always someone who can be impacted by diabetes.
The primary aim of the 2018–19 campaign is to raise awareness of the impact that diabetes has on the family and to promote the role of the family in the management, care, prevention and education of the condition.
This is important for families to learn about the warning signs of diabetes and get to know the risks of Type 2 diabetes. Four-in-five parents would have trouble recognising the warning signs.
The diabetes is a disease touching more than 425 millions of people in the world and is expected to rise year after year. In 2017, four million people died from diabetes
