World Diabetes Day 2017

 

Overview

The theme for World Diabetes Day (WDD) 2017 is Women and diabetes with the slogan Our right to a healthy future.

Led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), the campaign promotes the importance of affordable and equitable access for all women at risk of or living with diabetes to the essential diabetes medicines and technologies, self-management education and information they require to achieve optimal diabetes outcomes and strengthen their capacity to prevent type 2 diabetes.

Two out of every five women with diabetes are of reproductive age, accounting for over 60 million women worldwide. Women with diabetes have more difficulty conceiving and may have poor pregnancy outcomes.

The first set of promotional materials promoting the key messages of WDD 2017 are available at the links below. Further materials will be released between June and September 2017.
