With the continuous rise in disease prevalence, type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a real public health dilemma worldwide. Unfortunately, it is no longer restricted to the ageing population, as young adults and children are also being diagnosed with T2D. With fewer resources to cope, T2D is a major disease burden.


According to the WHO, by 2030 there will be 366 million diabetic subjects worldwide. Detecting diabetes as early as possible helps to control the disease and protect against additional serious health complications.


On this background the International Forum for Public Health is organising this two-day training workshop on “Diabetes: Control and Management”. It focuses on the public health impact, of T2D, identification, etiology and pathogenesis, and interventions for preventing the adverse outcomes of these conditions.



The aim of DCM is to share ideas and build consensus on the need for a concerted effort to strengthen human and institutional capacity to combat diabetes as public health threat and to formulate bold action plan to make it happen.
