World Day of Diabetes
The International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization introduced in 1991 the World Diabetes Day, which takes place each year on Nov 14th. Every year a specific theme related to diabetes is chosen to raise global awareness on this metabolic disease.
"Eyes on Diabetes" is the World Diabetes Day 2016 theme. In this year the focus is on promoting the importance of screening to ensure early diagnosis of type II diabetes.
