World diabetes day - 14th November 2019
13 November 2019
World diabetes day was jointly introduced by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). It is a globally-celebrated day to increase awareness about the illness through interventions like screenings, campaigns and sporting events.
The theme for this year’s awareness day is ‘The Family and Diabetes’ which focuses on the impact of diabetes on a patient’s family and support network as well as extra information and education for them to support those affected.
