The Walk in Numbers
Today, more than 463 million people have diabetes. By 2030, that could rise to 578 million. Most live with type 2 diabetes, which is preventable in many cases. Four out of five people with diabetes live in low- and middle-income countries.
Since 2004, more than 5 million people have joined the Global Diabetes Walk, which is WDF's contribution to the International Diabetes Federation’s annual campaign marking World Diabetes Day on November 14.
