United Nations World Diabetes Day

Every 10 seconds a person dies of diabetes related causes. Within the same 10 seconds, 2 new people develop the disease. Each year this adds up to more than 3 million deaths and 7 million new cases around the world. Diabetes is a global epidemic with devastating human, social and economic impact. Let this day, November 14th be a day that the whole world stands together to increase awareness and a passionate determination to work together to stop this silent killer.
