Total number of people screened:

One in two adults currently living with diabetes is undiagnosed. This World Diabetes Day, we are asking individuals who may be at risk of type 2 diabetes, people living with diabetes, diabetes associations and health professionals to take action to help identify people with undiagnosed type 2 diabetes, those at risk of developing it in future, and ensure early diagnosis and treatment of diabetes complications such as blindness.

Our aim is to achieve 1 MILLION INDIVIDUAL SCREENINGS recorded on the World Diabetes Day website during the month of November.


Individuals: Learn about your risk of type 2 diabetes by taking our online risk assessment questionnaire and help us reach the target of 1 million individuals screened.

Associations and health professionals: Organize a screening activity for type 2 diabetes or diabetes complications in November.
