415 million people globally have diabetes, if nothing is done, it is estimated that this number will rise to 642 million in 2040.
1 in 5 healthcare professionals do not receive any postgraduate training in diabetes. Less than 1 in 2 people with diabetes and 1 in 4 family members of people with diabetes have access to diabetes education programmes. Education of people with diabetes is a critically important, fundamental and an integral component of diabetes care that should be available and accessible to everyone.
