WORLD DIABETES & WELLNESS FORUM is a platform showcasing India as the leading country in prevention, care and cure of Diabetes through dissemination of latest science, new learnings, and further use to technology globally in the healthcare industry. In our endeavour to make India the flag bearer in preventing this upcoming global epidemic, we will be hosting World Diabetes Forum, which be a communicative, consultative and a commercial platform for the cause of diabetes, impact on NCDs, wellbeing and HealthTech innovations.
the second largest killer globally, and India being an extremely big diabetic market, Diabetes
is a major public health problem that is approaching epidemic proportions globally. Worldwide,
the prevalence of chronic, noncommunicable diseases is increasing at an alarming rate. About 18
million people die every year from cardiovascular disease, for which diabetes and hypertension
are major predisposing factors. Today, more than 1.7 billion adults worldwide are overweight,
and 312 million of them are obese. In addition, at least 155 million children worldwide are
overweight or obese. A diabetes epidemic is underway. India is home to 2nd highest number of
people with diabetes with a current figure of 74 million, second only to China. Two major
concerns are that much of this increase in Diabetes will occur in developing countries and that
there is a growing incidence of Type 2 Diabetes at a younger age including some obese children
even before puberty. In developed countries, most people with diabetes are above the age of
retirement. In developing countries, those most frequently affected are in the middle,
productive years of their lives, aged between 35 and 64.
The forum would give a concrete platform for growth and awareness through social impact practices and initiatives, which will lead to mass movement and raising consciousness amongst people globally on how to lead a part of wellbeing through preventive health.
