End Date: November 17, 2022
Location: Manama, Muḥāfaẓat al-ʿĀṣimah, Bahrain

The Kingdom of Bahrain is considered one of the countries most affected by diabetes, where the incidence of diabetes is 14.7% of the adult population, and predictions indicate a high percentage of people with diabetic disease to about a quarter of the region's population in the GCC countries by 2030. Bahrain Ministry of Health gives great importance to the issue of chronic non-communicable diseases, including diabetes mellitus, as one of the most important public health issues that have a significant impact on the health of individuals and communities.

The community activity will focus on efforts to increase education and awareness about Diabetes and encourage general public to adopt healthy diet and lifestyles (access to clean water, exercise, healthy diet, tobacco control, and climate change prevention) to maintain good health and increase overall general awareness about diabetes through education and early detection of diabetes.
