The world went blue for diabetes

On 14 November, millions once again united around the world to produce a powerful display of advocacy and awareness for the 366 million people currently living with diabetes and the many more at risk, firmly promoting the message that action on diabetes is required NOW.

A debt of gratitude is owed to the more than 200 member associations of the International Diabetes Federation in over 160 countries and the thousands of other dedicated organizations and individuals that organised events and joined together to make the day a special one.

The pictures and reports that we have received and which continue to come in tell the story of a remarkable shared experience, the global diabetes community uniting around the blue circle - the global symbol of diabetes - and going blue for diabetes. Here are some of the highlights:
