Can a peer support intervention improve type 2 diabetes outcomes?

Worldwide wake-up call

Diabetes is the unresolved development issue of the 21st century

The newly released 6th edition of IDF Diabetes Atlas reports that the number of people living with diabetes rose cataclysmically to 382 million in 2013. Our evidence shows that diabetes prevalence will skyrocket by 2035. By that time, nearly 600 million people will live with diabetes, and approximately 470 million will have impaired glucose tolerance. Put another way – 1 in every 8 people worldwide, 1 billion people, will live with or be at risk of diabetes.

Several kinds of battle


Several different battles are illustrated by the contents of this Issue of Diabetes Voice. The first of these is the battle individuals face to maintain any kind of diabetes self-care in the wake of cataclysmic natural disasters – hurricanes, typhoons, inundations, earthquakes, forest fires or whatever form these disasters may take.
