14th November 2023
World Diabetes Day is a global occasion on which people with diabetes, health professionals, diabetes advocates, media, the general public and government organisations unite to raise awareness of diabetes. Your participation – both in the build-up to and following 14 November – is key to the success of the campaign. Taking part can be exciting and hugely rewarding!
The theme for World Diabetes Day 2021-23 is Access to Diabetes Care. The focus of the campaign in 2023 is on delaying or preventing type 2 diabetes and diabetes-related complications, with the slogan “Know your risk, Know your response.”
This World Diabetes Day, International Diabetes Federation (IDF) is calling on governments to contribute to the global achievement of Universal Health Coverage and accelerate progress towards the achievement of the World Health Organization global diabetes coverage targets by 2030.
Support IDF’s call to action this World Diabetes Day by sending a letter to your national health minister or policymaker through IDF’s online platform.
