Diabetes is a common life-long health condition which is affecting millions of people every year. In the UK, there are 3 million people diagnosed with diabetes and an estimated 850,000 people who have the condition, but don't know it.

Each year on the 14th November, World Diabetes Day, the world is brought together to celebrate the event and raise awareness for the condition.

Since 2009, the campaign has carried a particular theme focusing on 'education and prevention'. To coincide with this theme, we have prepared for you a collection of free learning content, including audio, video, interactive game and extracts from real Open University courses.
