World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). The global diabetes awareness campaign was introduced amidst concern over an escalating health threat posed by the diabetes epidemic. World Diabetes Day became an official United Nations Day in 2006.
World Diabetes Day is the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign, reaching a global audience of over 1 billion people in more than 160 countries. The theme of World Diabetes Day, from 2014 to 2016 will be healthy living and diabetes.
Claire Murphy, Owner of Bluebird Care Alton & Alresford, said:
“Here at Bluebird Care we believe it is so important to support a cause which affects so many of us, and also many of our customers. Many cases of diabetes can be prevented earlier on by adopting a healthier lifestyle and making healthier food choices. We know first-hand that it is crucial our Care Assistants have an understanding of the specific needs of individuals with diabetes, but we also think that this awareness should spread throughout the community.”
