World Diabetes Day 2017

World Diabetes Day (WDD) is celebrated annually around the world on 14th November and is led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF).

World Diabetes Day was established in 1991 by IDF and the World Health Organization in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threats posed by diabetes. World Diabetes Day became an official United Nations Day in 2006 with the passage of United Nation Resolution 61/225.

The campaign is represented by a blue circle logo that was adopted in 2007 after the passage of the UN Resolution on diabetes. The blue circle is the global symbol for diabetes awareness and signifies the unity of the international diabetes community in response to the diabetic epidemic.

The theme of WDD 2017 is “Women and diabetes – our right to a healthy future.” Key messages guiding the campaign are:

  • All women with diabetes require affordable and equitable access to care and education to better manage their diabetes and improve their health outcomes.
  • Pregnant women requite improved access to screening, care and education to achieve positive health outcomes for mother and child.
  • Women and girls are key agents in the adoption of healthy lifestyles to improve the health and wellbeing of future generations.

The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) is an umbrella organisation of over 230 national diabetes associations in 170 countries and territories. IDF represents the interests of the growing number of people with diabetes and those at risk.

IDF is a diverse and inclusive multi-cultural network of national diabetes associations and an authoritative global voice on non-communicable diseases.

The IDF activities aim to influence policy, increase public awareness, encourage health improvement, promote accurate information about diabetes, and provide education to people with diabetes and their healthcare providers. IDF is associated with the Department of Public Information of the United Nations and retains official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
