International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health| World Diabetes Day 2023—“Access to Diabetes Care”

World Diabetes Day (WDD) is held annually on 14 November. Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects 1 in 10 adults worldwide. The purpose of WDD is to understand the risks of diabetes in order to delay or prevent the disease. The theme of WDD 2023 is “Access to diabetes care” to highlight the impact of diabetes-related diseases and the importance of access to correct information and care. 

To further discuss research related to World Diabetes Day (WDD), the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH, ISSN: 1660-4601) has brought together a collection of open-access academic research studies on the topic of the risks and care of diabetes-related conditions. We would like to use this special day to share new scientific knowledge in the field of diabetes risk prevention and care with the world.
