Today, nearly two thirds of the 382 million people with diabetes live in cities. If this trend continues, by 2035 as many as half a billion people will have diabetes* – nearly all of them in cities. Urban diabetes is an emergency in slow motion. But its growth is not inevitable. Cities Changing Diabetes is a commitment to pushing for urgent action against urban diabetes on a global scale. The aim is to map its extent, share solutions and tackle the growing challenge of diabetes in the world’s great cities, because we believe that when businesses, city leaders and planners, healthcare professionals, academics, and community leaders pull together, we can transform our cities into healthier places to live, work and play – and bring down the risk of urban diabetes. * IDF Diabetes Atlas.
