International Diabetes Experts Call for Stepped-Up Action and Shared Responsibility to Curb Rising Global Diabetes Epidemic and Impact
Date:11/14/2007

To Mark First-Ever United Nations World Diabetes Day, Experts Publish Practical Guidance to Help Achieve Mission of UN Resolution on Diabetes

NEW YORK, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Global Partnership for Effective Diabetes Management today called for an overhaul in the world's attitude and approach toward diabetes treatment and prevention in order to reverse the rising diabetes epidemic recently recognised by the first United Nations (UN) World Diabetes Day. In a new publication titled UN Resolution on Diabetes: "Time to Put Fine Words into Action," the Global Partnership urges national governments, the general population and the global diabetes community to take action and share responsibility in the global fight against diabetes. The new publication appears in the December issue of the International Journal of Clinical Practice and is currently available online at the journal's Web site (http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/toc/ijcp/61/s157).

"The UN Resolution is a major milestone as it recognises diabetes as a serious, growing and costly threat to individual and world health. The staggering statistics of this disease show that there is absolutely no room for complacency," said Martin Silink, International Diabetes Federation President and campaign lead for the UN Resolution on Diabetes. "In order for the UN Resolution to have true significance and real-world impact, we must join together to effectively implement proactive initiatives such as those outlined in the Global Partnership's publication."

Comprised of leading international diabetes experts, the Global Partnership is a global task force committed to providing practical advice to improve diabetes care. In the new publication, the experts respond to the UN Resolution's call to action by offering practical guidance to inspire and empower all members of the diabetes community to take action to improve diabetes
