World Diabetes Day [2020]

Updated On Jan 12, 2022

World Diabetes Day is marked on the 15th of November, and as a diabetes organisation this was an essential day for us, packed with numerous opportunities. The event marked a Memorandum of Understanding with three entities: Lions  Singapore, Lions, Prostheses Centre, and Sport SG.

Furthermore, BE SMART, a  Diabetes Prevention Programme was also launched during this event by the  Guest-of-Honour, Mr. Masagos Zulkifli, Second Minister for Health. BE SMART is a  diabetes prevention programme targeting individuals aged 40 to 84 with  medium to high risk of diabetes. It is Diabetes Singapore’s response to combat  diabetes inspired by the Ministry of Health’s strategic initiative – the declaration  of a ‘War on Diabetes’ in 2016.
