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 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.

As the authentic global voice of diabetes, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has achieved much in fixing diabetes firmly on the international political agenda. Diabetes and other Non-communicable Diseases (NCDs) are now recognised as leading threats to development in the 21st century and to the success of the United Nations’ ambition to eradicate poverty.

The undertaking that I gave on becoming President of the International Diabetes Federation is the same undertaking that was given by every President since the founding of our Federation more than sixty years ago – including such illustrious figures as Maria de Alva, Sir George Alberti, Pierre Lefèbvre, Martin Silink and, my immediate predecessor, Jean Claude Mbanya. But I assume the Presidency under extraordinary circumstances never before experienced by the Federation. This is a moment of history that troubles our minds and hurts our hearts.
