World Diabetes Day 2021: Theme

“Access to Diabetes Care – If Not Now, When?” is the theme for the World Diabetes Day 2021-2023. The campaign hinges on a particular theme that is followed for one or more years.

Though the day was conceived in 1991, it was in 2006 that the World Diabetes Day assumed official status as the United Nations Day after the United Nations Resolution was passed.

The day November 14 was chosen as the day for this initiative because it commemorates the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting, the medical scientist who discovered insulin in 1922 along with Charles Best. Leonard Thompson was the first to receive the insulin injection.

World Diabetes Day was officially recognized by the United Nations in 2006 with the passage of a resolution to this effect.
