Diabetes is an important public health
problem, one of four priority noncommunicable diseases
(NCDs) targeted for action by world leaders.
Both the number of cases and the prevalence of diabetes have been
steadily increasing over the past few decades.
The global prevalence (age-standardized) of diabetes has nearly doubled since 1980, rising from 4.7% to 8.5% in the adult population.
Type 1 diabetes cannot be prevented with current knowledge.
However, effective approaches are available to prevent
type 2 diabetes and to prevent the complications and
premature death that can result from all types of diabetes.
Preventing premature death requires stronger responses not only from different sectors of government, but also from civil society and people with diabetes themselves, and producers of food and manufacturers of medicines and
Effectively addressing diabetes does not just happen; it is the result of collective consensus and public investment in
interventions that are affordable, cost-effective and based
on the best available science…
