聯合國糖尿病日 World Diabetes Day 2012

聯合國糖尿病日(世界糖尿病日),是世界衛生組織和國際糖尿病聯合會為喚起全世界對糖尿病危害的關註,自1991年起設定的紀念日。每年的11月14日是聯合國糖尿病日。11月14日是加拿大科學家班廷(Banting)的生日,他於1923年發現了胰島素,並因此獲得了諾貝爾醫學獎。班廷於1921年發現了胰島素,並因此於1923年獲得了諾貝爾醫學獎。

聯合國2006年12月20日通過決議,從2007年起將每年11月14日“世界糖尿病日”升格為“聯合國糖尿病日”,並要求所有會員國、聯合國各相關組織、其他國際組織和民間團體,以適當方式開展活動,將糖尿病的預防控制提升為政府行為。

2009﹣2013年的主題為「糖尿病教育與预防」。

World Diabetes Day (WDD) is celebrated every year on November 14. The World Diabetes Day campaign is led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and its member associations. It engages millions of people worldwide in diabetes advocacy and awareness. World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threat that diabetes now poses. World Diabetes Day became an official United Nations Day in 2007 with the passage of United Nation Resolution 61/225. The campaign draws attention to issues of paramount importance to the diabetes world and keeps diabetes firmly in the public spotlight.

World Diabetes Day is a campaign that features a new theme chosen by the International Diabetes Federation each year to address issues facing the global diabetes community. While the themed campaigns last the whole year, the day itself is celebrated on November 14, to mark the birthday of Frederick Banting who, along with Charles Best, first conceived the idea which led to the discovery of insulin in 1922.

Diabetes Education and Prevention is the World Diabetes Day theme for the period 2009-2013.
