WHO to launch Global Diabetes Compact in April 2021

16 November 2020

To mark World Diabetes Day on 14 November, the World Health Organization announced the launch of the Global Diabetes Compact in April 2021.

The Global Diabetes Compact will be a comprehensive and inclusive approach to support countries in implementing effective diabetes prevention and management programmes. On the prevention side, it will focus on reducing obesity – especially among young people. On the treatment side, the main goal will be to improve access to diabetes medicines and technologies, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.
