Global Events — World Diabetes Day
World Diabetes Day is celebrated worldwide by the global diabetes community every year on November 14 to mark the birthday of Frederick Banting who, along with Charles Best, discovered insulin in 1922, a life-saving treatment for diabetes patients. It was introduced in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) in response to the alarming rise in diabetes around the world.
World Diabetes Day became an official United Nations Day in 2007 with the passage of United Nation Resolution 61/225. The World Diabetes Day logo is the blue circle which was adopted in 2007 to mark the passage of the United Nations World Diabetes Day Resolution.
World Diabetes Day raises global awareness of diabetes – its escalating rates around the world and how to prevent the illness in most cases. Each year World Diabetes Day is centred on a theme related to diabetes.
Diabetes Education and Prevention is the World Diabetes Day theme for the period 2009-2013. The campaign slogan for 2010 is ‘Let’s take control of diabetes. Now.’
WHO estimates that more than 220 million people worldwide have diabetes. This number is likely to more than double by 2030 without intervention. Almost 80% of diabetes deaths occur in low and middle-income countries.
