When Is World Diabetes Day?

When Is World Diabetes Day? Some people may ask.

To raise global awareness of diabetes and its escalating rates around the world and how to prevent the illness in most cases. World diabetes Day was started by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and World Health Organisation (WHO), the Day is celebrated on 14 November to mark the birthday of Frederick Banting who, along with Charles Best, was instrumental in the discovery of insulin in 1922, a life-saving treatment for diabetes patients.

World Diabetes Day is a campaign that features a theme chosen by the International Diabetes Federation to address issues facing the global diabetes community. When it is World Diabetes Day, over 200 member associations of the International Diabetes Federation in more than 160 countries and territories, all Member States of the United Nations, as well as by other associations and organizations, companies, healthcare professionals and people living with diabetes and their families.

Every year a theme is decided upon to help those most in need. In 2004, World Diabetes Day themed Diabetes and Obesity. This year, World Diabetes Day is concerned with diabetes in children and adolescents. Hence, World Diabetes Day theme is different every year.

World Diabetes Day include a range of activities and events, including meetings and lectures to spread public information, sporting events for adults and children, television and radio programmes, leaflet and poster campaigning carrying World Diabetes Day logo, exhibitions and conferences and much, much more.

World Diabetes Day Logo The logo of World Diabetes Day is a blue circle, which is already recognised by hundreds of thousands of people with diabetes throughout the world. Having a distinctive logo is an essential part of spreading the message about diabetes awareness to the wide audiences.
