How was World Diabetes Day created?
Every year, November 14., countries around the world emphasize the presence of diabetes in a special way. Why is that? The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) declared World Diabetes Day not so long ago in 1991 as a response to increasing concern for the health threat posed by undiscovered or then poorly regulated diabetes.
Later, this day became the official day of the United Nations by adopting Resolution 61/225 in 2006.
Why exactly this day?
Namely, on November 14., 1891. Sir Frederick Banting was born. This doctor, and later Nobel Prize Winner, along with his student, Charles Best, discovered insulin in 1921.
That’s why we take care of children, diet, health! Life has no price!
