It’s World Diabetes Day

Today marks the World Diabetes Day. In line with this year’s theme “Education to Protect”, ECDA supports awareness around major chronic non communicable diseases such as diabetes and calls on policymakers to increase access to health literacy, to improve the lives of the million people living with diabetes in Europe. We reiterate our call for improved prevention & management of chronic diseases like diabetes in Europe, which share common risk factors and clinical links. Diabetes that is undetected or inadequately treated can lead to serious complications and other chronic diseases.
