Empowering Global Health: Uniting for Universal Diabetes Care Access

Author - Dr. Asiya Nabi | Assistant Medical Director & General Practitioner

World Diabetes Day 2023 is themed "Access to Diabetes Care," emphasizing the critical need for universal access to comprehensive care. The key messages for this day underscore our commitment to ensuring affordable, quality diabetes care, encompassing prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and education for everyone with diabetes.


As we observe World Diabetes Day on November 14, 2023, it serves as a global rallying cry. The chosen theme, "A Call to Unite for Diabetes Care Access," reinforces the belief that health is a fundamental right, not a privilege. Commemorating this day, let's renew our dedication to bridging the access gap, striving for a world where superior diabetes care is accessible to all.


The Global Diabetes Challenge remains a formidable health issue, impacting over 578 million adults globally. This challenge extends beyond individual health, affecting communities and straining healthcare systems. With projections indicating a rise to 783 million by 2045, a collective response becomes imperative to ensure the well-being of all. Examining the Global Diabetes Landscape reveals a surge in cases driven by urbanization, aging populations, genetics, and unhealthy lifestyles. In 2021, the global cost of diabetes reached an astounding $966 billion, emphasizing the financial burden and its impact on lives and well-being.


Our Collective Commitment to World Diabetes Day 2023 must be unwavering. Envisioning a world where diabetes care is a universal right, we collectively address the access gap. This empowers individuals to effectively manage their conditions, prevent complications, and lead healthier lives.
