Dear MDES members,

In this October issue, we focus on the World Diabetes Day 2017 campaign which is “Women and Diabetes: our right to a healthy future.” In her special guest editorial, Dr Sania Nishstar, one of three candidates nominated for the post of Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), writes:

Approximately 199 million women live with diabetes which is projected to rise to 313 million by 2040.1 I fear this may just be the tip of the iceberg. Girls and women with diabetes experience a range of challenges. Power dynamics, gender roles and socioeconomic inequalities influence vulnerability to diabetes, such as by exposing women to poor diet and nutrition and physical inactivity disproportionately. These factors also affect women’s access to health services and health seeking behaviour, and amplify the impact of diabetes on women, particularly in developing countries.
