Abstract

It is a bittersweet pleasure to be presiding over the International Diabetes Federation upon the launch of this sixth edition of the IDF Diabetes Atlas. The evidence published herein on the millions of people swept up by the diabetes pandemic vindicates the
Federation’s relentless efforts to promote solutions to this worldwide health crisis. Previous editions of the Atlas were a crucial tool in the successful campaign for a UN Resolution on diabetes and our figures informed the subsequent political
declaration on non-communicable diseases. We have achieved much: diabetes is now firmly on the highest of decision-making agendas. But the figures in this edition are a harsh reminder of how far we still have to go.
