Novo Nordisk has announced the launch of ‘Cities Changing Diabetes’, which is an ambitious new partnership programme to fight the urban diabetes challenge. The ‘Cities Changing Diabetes’ programme will first be launched in Mexico City with other cities in North America, Europe and Asia soon to follow.
The rise of diabetes is one of the world’s most serious health challenges with statistics getting worse every year. By 2030, it is estimated that more than half a billion people will suffer from diabetes. Today, nearly two-thirds of everyone with diabetes live in cities, and those who move to cities are significantly more likely to develop diabetes than those who remain in rural settings
