Briefing Book 2020: Action on urban diabetes. How cities are building a healthier future
Home to two-thirds of people living with diabetes, cities are at the front line of the diabetes challenge. How cities are run, significantly impacts how people live, travel, play, work and eat — factors that, in combination, affect the rise in diabetes. The briefing book 2020 is telling the story of how more than 25 cities are now taking local action to bend the curve on diabetes through the Cities Changing Diabetes Programme. It also presents the Urban Diabetes Declaration with five principles for tackling one of today’s biggest health challenges. The briefing book is full of health actions, policies and partnerships that cities are delivering to fight urban diabetes.
