World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day (WDD) is the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign with events organised in more than 100 countries in 2015 and dedicated advocacy activities around G7, UN General Assembly and G20.

Led by the International Diabetes Federation, WDD unites the global diabetes community to produce a powerful voice for diabetes awareness and advocacy. WDD is a year-long campaign to reflect the realities of dealing with a chronic condition.

The theme of WDD 2016 will be ‘Eyes on diabetes’. Supporting materials for the campaign will be released from May 16 through to September in an effort to help WDD stakeholders to prepare for the day.
