This course was created by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and World Health Organisation (WHO) in response to the growing concerns about the escalating threat posed by diabetes, affecting many aspects of health. Diabetes negatively affects quality of life and costs considerable resources to address.

Consider some of these statistics provided by the IDF:

  • 1 in 11 adults today have diabetes
  • By 2040, this will increase to 1 in 10
  • Nearly half of adults with diabetes are undiagnosed
  • 12% of global expenditure is spent on diabetes
  • Every 6 seconds, a person dies from diabetes
  • Women with Type II diabetes are almost 10 times more likely to have coronary heart disease than those without
  • Up to 70% of cases of Type II diabetes could be prevented through the adoption of a healthy lifestyle
