World Diabetes Day observed amidst colourful rally
By Our Correspondent, 14/11/2017, Agartala

 

With the other parts of the nation, Tripura on Tuesday also observed World Diabetes Day to raise awareness among the people.  To commemorate the observance of World Diabetes Day a rally was also organized at Agartala which moved across the several parts of the state and raised awareness.  The rally was organized under the banner of the Diabetes Welfare society.  The theme for this year is Diabetes and Women, - Our right to a healthy future..

World Diabetes Day is the primary global awareness campaign focusing on diabetes mellitus and is held on November 14 each year.

Led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), each World Diabetes Day focuses on a theme related to diabetes. Topics covered have included diabetes and human rights, diabetes and lifestyle, diabetes and obesity, diabetes in the disadvantaged and the vulnerable, and diabetes in children and adolescents. While the campaigns last the whole year, the day itself marks the birthday of Frederick Banting who, along with Charles Best and John James Rickard Macleod, first conceived the idea which led to the discovery of insulin in 1922.
