NEWS

Diabetes is relentless - so are we

of people affected by diabetes. Our

campaigns have helped make Flash

Glucose Monitoring (FreeStyle Lbre)

available on the NHS across the UK, and

cancelled unfair prescription fines. And

through our services and information,

we've supported millions in managing

and living with their diabetes, continued

to raise awareness of the seriousness

of diabetes, and to dispel myths and

challenge the stigma of diabetes.

A new start

Through our new five-year strategy we're

restating our commitment to tackling the

diabetes crisis on all fronts. We're facing

an urgent public health problem. Tackling

this requires ambitious and sustained

action from national governments,

across sectors and departments. That's

because, right now, it's hard to be healthy.

We will keep challenging government

and industry to put in place regulations

and practices that make healthy choices

easier for everyone, including making food

and drinks healthier, and addressing the

marketing and promotion of unhealthy

foods. Without action, more people will

develop Type 2 and gestational diabetes

- but with more awareness, government

action and the right investment and

support, we can change this."

Reducing the number of people

getting T2D and gestational diabetes is

one of five key outcomes in Diabetes UK's

new five-year strategy, launched to mark

WDD2019 (see later for full list)..

The ambitious strategy, A Generation

to End the Harm, focuses on achieving

five key outcomes by 2025. Says Askew,

Diabetes UK's chief executive,

Chris Askew

Chris Askew, Chief Executive of Diabetes UK, explains the

national charity's new five-year strategy to combat the impact

of living with any form of the condition.

"

every World Diabetes Day

millions of people around

the world come together

to raise awareness of

diabetes. It's a time to

reflect the challenges people affected by

diabetes face, to celebrate our shared

successes and to look to a future where

the harm from diabetes comes to an

end. Despite progress and achievement

over many years, we know that getting

the changes that people living with and

affected by diabetes want for the future

will require urgent action.

Over the five years of our last strategy,

our supporters and partners have enabled

us to achieve a huge amount. To advance

our understanding of diabetes, we've

funded more research than ever before,

propelling a world-leading consortium

to make discoveries in immunotherapy

for Type 1 diabetes (T1D), and funding

successful studies into the remission of

Type 2 diabetes (T2D).

Our campaigns have also led to

significant societal change, influencing

decision makers to improve the lives
