Wear Blue For Diabetes

In many parts of the world, the beginning of November marks the start of a month-long series of activities aimed at raising diabetes awareness and calling for urgent action to tackle the diabetes epidemic. Here's a reminder of why urgent action is required to protect our future:
  • There are currently 366 million people living with diabetes. This figure is set to rise to over 550 million by 2030.
  • Diabetes is responsible for 4.6 million deaths a year - 1 every 7 seconds.
  • Diabetes is among the top 10 causes of disability, resulting in life-threatening complications such as heart disease, stroke, lower limb amputations and blindness.
  • 50% of people with diabetes are undiagnosed.
  • 80% of people with diabetes live in low- and middle-income countries.
View our World Diabetes Day campaign messages to help inform your awareness activities in the days and weeks to come. Together we can make a difference!
