World Diabetes Day 2017

World Diabetes Day falls on 14 November every year. It’s a day when millions of people around the world come together to raise awareness of diabetes.

This year we’re talking about the realities of diabetes. During the summer we talked to more than 9,000 people about what life with diabetes is really like.

They told us what needs to happen to build a better future for them and other people with diabetes. Together we can make it happen. 

How will you join the fight for a better future?


I will campaign for change

There are loads of different ways you can join our campaigns and be part of our fight for a world where diabetes can do no harm.

I will build understanding of diabetes

We’re fighting to make sure people know diabetes. It’s a fight you can join. We need your help to share knowledge, build understanding, and tackle stigma.

I will connect with other people

Whether you’re looking for extra support or are keen to share your experiences, by connecting with other people you’ll help our diabetes community grow.
