The Theme Of World Diabetes Day (wdd) 2017 - 14 November - Is Women And Diabetes

Slogan- OUR RIGHT TO A HEALTHY FUTURE Led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), the campaign will promote the importance of affordable and equitable access for all women at risk for or living with diabetes to the essential diabetes medicines and technologies, self-management education and information they require to achieve optimal diabetes outcomes and strengthen their capacity to prevent type 2 diabetes. There are currently over 199 million women living with diabetes, and this total is projected to increase to 313 million by 2040. Diabetes is the ninth leading cause of death in women globally, causing 2.1 million deaths each year. As a result of socioeconomic conditions, girls and women with diabetes experience barriers in accessing cost-effective diabetes prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment and care, particularly in developing countries. Two out of every five women with diabetes are of reproductive age, accounting for over 60 million women worldwide. Women with diabetes have more difficulty conceiving and may have poor pregnancy outcomes. Approximately one in seven births is affected by gestational diabetes (GDM), a severe and neglected threat to maternal and child health. A significant number of women with GDM also go on to develop type 2 diabetes resulting in further healthcare complications and costs. Women and girls must be empowered with equitable access to knowledge and resources that will strengthen their capacity to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes and influence the adoption of healthy lifestyles to improve the health and well-being of those around them and future generations. Further materials will be released from June until September to help campaign stakeholders and the wider diabetes community prepare for activities o Continue reading >>

What Is World Diabetes Day 2017?

Started in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organisation (WHO), the World Diabetes Day creates awareness about the effects of diabetes globally. The United Nations declared November 14 as an official World Diabetes Day (WDD). The day also marks the birth anniversary of scientist and Nobel laureate Frederick Banting who is the co-discoverer of insulin.

In 2016 the theme set by the IDF was ‘Eyes on Diabetes’ whereas this year the IDF has decided to concentrate on the effects of diabetes on women. People informed and concerned about the illness often address it by organising activities in their neighbourhoods and nearby parks. IDF has shortlisted nine countries in the South-East Asia (SEA) Region as the most afflicted with the highest number of people suffering from diabetes, India being one of them. The Federation did a data study on India and it was found that out of the 79.8 million adults living in India, a shocking 69.1 million adults suffered from diabetes. Continue reading >>
