    WHO's message on World Diabetes Day; it affects 6% of world population

    The total number today is four times what it was in 1980. What’s more, the number is rising most rapidly in low-and-middle-income countries

    This year’s World Diabetes Day, Saturday 14 November, falls during a global pandemic which has already taken the lives of well over a million people. People with diabetes are paying a particularly high price. Not only do they have a higher risk of severe COVID-19 disease and death when infected, but many are having difficulty accessing the treatment they need due to disruptions to essential health services.
