World Diabetes Day 2021

14th November 2021, worldwide.

World Diabetes Day is the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign reaching a global audience of over 1 billion people in more than 160 countries. The campaign draws attention to issues of paramount importance to the diabetes world and keeps diabetes firmly in the public and political spotlight.

The World Diabetes Day campaign aims to be the:

  • platform to promote International Diabetes Foundation advocacy efforts throughout the year.
  • global driver to promote the importance of taking coordinated and concerted actions to confront diabetes as a critical global health issue.

Acces to diabetes care:

100 years after the discovery of insulin, millions of people with diabetes around the world cannot access the care they need. People with diabetes require ongoing care and support to manage their condition and avoid complications.

The theme for World Diabetes Day 2021-23 is Access to Diabetes Care.

  • millions of people with diabetes around the world do not have access to diabetes care.
  • people with diabetes require ongoing care and support to manage their condition and avoid complications.

We cannot wait any longer for:

  • medicine, technologies, support and care to be made available to all people with diabetes that require them.
  • governments to increase investment in diabetes care and prevention.

The centenary of the discovery of insulin presents a unique opportunity to bring about meaningful change for the more than 460 million people living with diabetes and the millions more at risk. United, the global diabetes community has the numbers, the influence and the determination to bring about meaningful change. We need to take on the challenge.

If not now, when?
