A bold goal: bending the curve on type 2 diabetes (01:44)

This video shows the current and possible future state of the type 2 diabetes epidemic.

By 2045, an astounding 736 million people could be living with diabetes. Given the devastating human and economic cost that diabetes and its complications have on individuals, families and communities, this growth is simply unsustainable.

We must change the trajectory of the rise in diabetes – and that means setting a bold ambition that no more than 1 in 10 adults globally has the disease.

To achieve this will require ambitious action on the biggest modifiable risk factor for diabetes – obesity: we must reduce obesity by 25% globally between now and 2045 . If we do that, we will bend the curve on the huge rise in diabetes prevalence, and prevent an extra 111 million people developing the disease.
