About World Diabetes Day

This year’s World Diabetes Day (WWD) will be celebrated on Thursday 14 November to mark the birthday of Frederick Banting, who, along with Charles Best, first conceived the idea which led to the discovery of insulin in 1922.

The World Diabetes Day campaign, led by the International Diabetes Federation and its member associations since 1991, engages millions of people worldwide in diabetes advocacy and awareness. The campaign draws attention to issues of paramount importance to the diabetes world and keeps diabetes firmly in the public spotlight.
