World Diabetes Day comprises hundreds of campaigns, activities, screenings, lectures, meetings and more. This annual event is proving internationally effective in spreading the message about diabetes and raising awareness for the condition. The theme of World Diabetes Day in 2017 is Women and Diabetes — our right to a healthy future.
The campaign will promote the importance of affordable and equitable access for all women at risk from 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.
14 November is a significant date because it marks the birthday of the man who co-discovered insulin, Frederick Banting. Banting discovered insulin in 1922, alongside Charles Best.
Want to lessen your risk of diabetes? Just 30 minutes of exercise — which can be swimming, dancing, cycling or brisk walking — can reduce the risk of diabetes by 40%.
