Date posted: 15 August 2013

World Diabetes Day 2013 is less than 100 days away and will be celebrated on November 14. The campaign is led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and its member associations.

The theme for 2013 is ‘Take a step for diabetes' and aims to engage people in the diabetes cause by encouraging them to make a symbolic donation of steps accrued through various activities. Steps can be from any activities that help promote diabetes awareness, improve the lives of people with diabetes, promote healthy lifestyles or reduce peoples risk of developing diabetes.

Steps are submitted on an online platform and count towards reaching a target in support of the 371 million people living with diabetes worldwide.
