[Editorial] Beat diabetes: an urgent call for global action

The theme of this year’s World Health Day on April 7—Beat diabetes—adds to a 2011 UN initiative to stem the rise in prevalence of diabetes by 2025, as well as to reduce premature deaths from non-communicable diseases, part of Sustainable Development Goal 3. In today’s Lancet, the NCD Risk-Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC) report that in 2014, an estimated 422 million people worldwide were living with diabetes—roughly a four-fold increase over the past 35 years. The NCD-RisC pooled data from 751 studies that measured either fasting plasma glucose or haemoglobin A1c to determine global and regional trends in diabetes prevalence.
