WHO calls for global action to halt rise in and improve care for people with diabetes

Posted by:bozhihuili    Published:2016-04-07 16:46

On the occasion of World Health Day 2016, WHO issues a call for action on diabetes, drawing attention to the 

need to step up prevention and treatment of the disease.

The first WHO Global report on diabetes demonstrates that the number of adults living with diabetes has almost 

quadrupled since 1980 to 422 million adults. Factors driving this dramatic rise include overweight and obesity.

In 2012 alone diabetes caused 1.5 million deaths. Its complications can lead to heart attack, stroke, blindness, 

kidney failure and lower limb amputation.

The new report calls upon governments to ensure that people are able to make healthy choices and that health 

systems are able to diagnose, treat and care for people with diabetes. It encourages us all as individuals to eat 

healthily, be physically active, and avoid excessive weight gain.
