World Diabetes Day 2023

World Diabetes Day is on 14 November 2023.

100 years ago, Frederick Banting and John Macleod won a Nobel Prize for discovering the treatment which has gone on to save millions of lives around the world - insulin.  

Since then, our scientists have made incredible breakthroughs – from helping people with type 1 to make their own insulin, to putting type 2 into remission. And we’re getting closer to a cure every day. 

All this has only been possible because of you. But there’s still more to do. This World Diabetes Day, will you help us stop diabetes forever? 

Stop diabetes forever

We won't stop until no one has to prick their fingers, to inject, to carb count.  

We won't stop until no one has to think like a pancreas every second of the day. 

We won't stop until we can cure or prevent diabetes for everyone.
