World Diabetes Day (WDD) is the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign reaching a global audience of over 1 billion people in more than 160 countries. World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threat posed by diabetes. The theme of World Diabetes Day 2017 is Women and diabetes – our right to a healthy future and this day is celebrated every year on 14 November. WDD is represented by a blue circle logo, which is the global symbol for diabetes awareness.

There are currently over 199 million women living with diabetes. Two out of every five women with diabetes are of reproductive age, accounting for over 60 million women worldwide. Diabetes is the ninth leading cause of death in women globally, causing 2.1 million deaths per year. 1 in 7 births is affected by gestational diabetes. IDF estimates that 20.9 million or 16.2% of live births to women in 2015 had some form of hyperglycemia in pregnancy. Approximately half of women with a history of GDM go on to develop type 2 diabetes within five to ten years after delivery. Half of all cases of hyperglycemia in pregnancy occur in women under the age of 30.

Our education program is focused on nurses’ education as nurses play a key role in treatment of diabetics. Nurses’ knowledge, abilities & strategies can positively influence behavioral change in individual with diabetes so as to adhere to diet, physical activities, monitoring blood sugar & taking oral medication & insulin which enable adequate metabolic control.
