Cities Changing Diabetes

Two-thirds of the 415 million people with diabetes live in cities. Urban diabetes is a growing challenge that no organization or company can solve on its own, but partnerships between companies, managers, planners, architects and healthcare professionals can make a difference.

People in the city

The purpose of Cities Changing Diabetes is to create a movement where partnerships work together to identify and implement solutions to tackle urban diabetes, help develop action plans, and bring health improvements to the agenda of future urban planning.

Insight, action and partnerships

The website Cities Changing Diabetes will create insight and establish a platform for the partnerships as well as convey current actions and events. The site also presents the cities of Copenhagen, Houston, Johannesburg, Mexico City, Shanghai and Tianjin are partner cities that are at the forefront of the Cities Changing Diabetes movement.
