Diabetes Day is a universal awareness campaign that was started in 1991 as a result of the increase in diabetes-related health threat cases.
It is held annually on November 14. It was launched by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the United Nations with the aim of preventing and curing diabetes. However, it was only until 2006 that it was recognized officially as United Nations Day.
The main activities that are carried out during this day include social media awareness campaigns, diabetes screening programmes, sports events, among others.
The date selected for the day also has a short story of itself. November 14 was chosen for the day because it was the birthday of Frederick Banting, Canadian scientist who was the first to use insulin on humans for treatment of Diabetes.
