World Health Day 2016: Diabetes

Date: 07 Apr 2016

WHO is focusing the next World Health Day on diabetes! The main goals of the World Health Day 2016 campaign will be to:

- Increase awareness about the rise in diabetes, and its staggering burden and consequences, in particular in low-and middle-income countries;

- Trigger a set of specific, effective and affordable actions to tackle diabetes. These will include steps to prevent diabetes and diagnose, treat and care for people with diabetes; and

- Launch the first Global report on diabetes, which will describe the burden and consequences of diabetes and advocate for stronger health systems to ensure improved surveillance, enhanced prevention, and more effective management of diabetes.

Watch the conference live today the 7th of April from 11:00 herehttp://www.who.int/campaigns/world-health-day/2016/webcast/en/
