422 million people have #diabetes‎‬  around the world. That’s almost four times the number of people living with diabetes than in 1980! Most of them live in developing countries, and factors driving this dramatic rise include overweight and obesity. 
We dedicate #WorldHealthDay , 7 April, to this growing problem. We need to step up prevention and treatment of the disease. Together, we can beat diabetes.
