Presenting new epidemiological and diabetes-related impact data.
IDF is delighted to announce the launch of its new WeChat channel, developed with the support from its inaugural partner, Gan & Lee Pharmaceuticals.
New data from the International Diabetes Federation shows that 13% of the adult population - or 141 million adults - in China is now living with diabetes - a rise of 16% (74 million) in the past two years. More than half (50.5%) of those affected are undiagnosed.
This new data, from the 10th Edition of the IDF Diabetes Atlas, confirms diabetes as a significant challenge to the health and wellbeing of individuals and families in the country. In view of this, the International Diabetes Federation is delighted to announce the launch of its new WeChat channel.
Developed with the support from its inaugural partner, Gan & Lee Pharmaceuticals, the channel will allow IDF to expand the reach of its advocacy, awareness and education activities to health professionals and people living with diabetes in China.
