Welcome to the Autumn issue of Diabetes Voice. In this issue we continue our focus on the need for action to reverse the accelerating development of type 2 diabetes and obesity, with regions as far apart as Scandinavia and East Africa describing current activity with this goal. It is perhaps not surprising that despite major differences in language, lifestyles and per capita spending on healthcare, many of the problems – and their potential solutions – are shared.

Thirty years ago, when I was a young doctor at the Central Hospital in Yaoundé, Cameroon, a heart attack was highly unusual ‒ so rare an occurrence, in fact, that medical students at the hospital were called in to take a look at any new case. Today, however, cardiovascular diseases, along with diabetes and the other non-communicable diseases, cancer and chronic respiratory diseases, are the most common killers in Cameroon and throughout West Africa.

A recent report by the World Bank warns of an impending health crisis sparked by rising rates of type 2 diabetes and other non-communicable diseases (NCDs) – not among the SUV-driving suburban middle classes of Europe or North America, but in South Asia, home to the world's largest population of poor people, where more than 1 billion are living on less than 2 USD a day.

In this issue of Diabetes Voice, IDF continues its campaign to raise the profile of diabetes with healthcare organizations, governments and people everywhere. We have an exclusive interview with Badara Samb, who brings the experience he has had with other diseases of global significance to bear on our diseases of diabetes. And IDF’s Katie Dain builds on the focus of our last issue on women’s health, discussing the important condition of gestational diabetes, with its implications for future diabetes in both the mother and baby – and its enormous potential for diabetes prevention.
