World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day is celebrated annually on November 14. This day is commemorated in many countries of the world.

For the first time World Diabetes Day was celebrated by International Diabetes Federation and World Health Organization on November 14, 1991 to coordinate the fight against diabetes around the world. World Diabetes Day was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in a special resolution on December 20, 2006. The resolution of General Assembly invites all UN member states to develop national programs for diabetes control and care for people with diabetes. Since 2007, World Diabetes Day has been celebrated under the auspices of United Nations.

Diabetes is one of the dangerous health diseases. It is the chronic disease, which occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. By keeping healthy diet and physical activity people can prevent themselves from this health problem.

World Diabetes Day is a significant reminder to the all humanity that the prevalence of the disease is steadily increasing.
