World Diabetes Day 14th November
The theme of World Diabetes Day 2017 is Women and diabetes – our right to a healthy future.
The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) will launch a campaign to promote the importance of access to the essential diabetes medicines and technologies, self-management education and information required to achieve optimal outcomes for women at risk of, or already living with diabetes. The emphasis is on affordable and fair access to services and information, to provide support with management and capacity to prevent type 2 diabetes.
According to the IDF 2017 website, they “will release campaign materials from May through to September to help the diabetes and wider WDD stakeholder community to prepare for World Diabetes Day on 14 November”.
