Event Description

WDD is the world's largest diabetes awareness campaign reaching a global audience of over 1 billion people in more than 160 countries. The campaign draws attention to issues of paramount importance to the diabetes world and keeps diabetes firmly in the public and political spotlight.

The campaign is represented by a blue circle logo that was adopted in 2007 after the passage of the UN Resolution on diabetes. The blue circle is the global symbol for diabetes awareness. It signifies the unity of the global diabetes community in response to the diabetes epidemic.

Being a medical humanitarian organisation, MTT’s team put together an exciting event to generate widespread interest around World Diabetes Day and amplify awareness of the dangers of diabetes. The team organised free screening and sensitization for type 2 diabetes in Wuse International Market, Abuja. The event was indeed a success, many thanks to contributions from donors and support from our volunteers and medical team.
