Access to diabetes care

The theme for World Diabetes Day 2021-23 is Access to Diabetes Care.

  • Millions of people with diabetes around the world do not have access to diabetes care.
  • People with diabetes require ongoing care and support to manage their condition and avoid complications.

We cannot wait any longer for:

  • Medicine, technologies, support and care to be made available to all people with diabetes that require them.
  • Governments to increase investment in diabetes care and prevention.

The centenary of the discovery of insulin presents a unique opportunity to bring about meaningful change for the more than 530 million people living with diabetes and the millions more at risk.

In 2022, the campaign will focus on promoting the importance of diabetes education for both health professionals and people living with diabetes. Messaging and supporting materials for the campaign will be made available starting in May.
