Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are on the rise and now make up 7 of the world’s top 10 causes of death. Diabetes is among the top 10 causes of death worldwide, and has increased by 70% since 2000. The number of children and young people living with diabetes is also increasing every year and 1 million now have type 1 diabetes (T1D). However, diabetes commonly goes undiagnosed or is only recognised when life-threatening complications develop. For those who receive a diagnosis, access to insulin remains elusive in many parts of the world. These trends are in contradiction of global political commitments to halt the rise of diabetes deaths by 2025.
On the 14 th April 2021, 100 years since the discovery of insulin, WHO is launching the WHO Global Diabetes Compact. To support this monumental step, strategically selected advocates with lived experiences of diabetes, government representatives and thought leaders representing a variety of stakeholders will feed into a discussion around the opportunities to support implementation of the WHO Global Diabetes Compact and catalyse access to health care services for people living with diabetes of all ages.
This event sought to:
Harness the voices of people living with diabetes and provide an opportunity for a variety of stakeholders to reflect on the content of the WHO Global Diabetes Compact.
Amplify the need to include the needs and perspectives of children and young people in efforts to implement the WHO Global Diabetes Compact.
Identify and share lessons learnt from Government initiatives to improve access to diabetes and NCD prevention and care as a means to support the implementation of the WHO Global Diabetes Compact.
Call for action across stakeholders to support the implementation of the WHO Global Diabetes Compact.
This event was moderated by:
Mr Kyle Jacques Rose, Vice-President, International Diabetes Federation
Dr Mark Barone, Vice-President, International Diabetes Federation;
Dr the Honourable Christopher Tufton, Minister of Health, Jamaica;
Dr Bente Mikkelsen, Director, Department of NCDs, World Health Organization;
