World Diabetes Day (WDD) Activities

The theme chosen for World Diabetes Day (WDD) 2018-19 by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) was Family and Diabetes. WDD was originally created in 1991 by the IDF and the World Health Organization in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threat posed by diabetes, and is observed on 14 November, every year. The primary aim of this year’s WDD and World Diabetes Month campaign was to raise awareness of the impact that diabetes has on the family and to promote the role of the family in the management, care, prevention and education of the condition. As in the previous years, WDD was observed by JDC on November 14th and various month-long diabetes awareness and educational activities were carried out to mark the World diabetes month.
