Mumbai, November 14, 2023:  World Diabetes Day is a global occasion on which people with diabetes, health professionals, diabetes advocates, media, the general public and government organisations unite to raise awareness of diabetes. Your participation – both in the build-up to and following 14 November – is key to the success of the campaign. 

The theme for World Diabetes Day 2021-23 is Access to Diabetes Care. The focus of the campaign in 2023 is on delaying or preventing type 2 diabetes and diabetes-related complications, with the slogan “Know your risk, Know your response.”

Dr. Santosh Puri, Senior Vice President - Health Product & Process, Health Insurance, Tata AIG General Insurance, has a special perspective to share on the occasion: “On National Diabetes Day, Tata AIG recognizes the challenges posed by diabetes. Given the significant role that family medical history and genetics play, especially with the prevalence of diabetes and hereditary diseases, obtaining health insurance emerges as a fundamental risk protection tool for individuals with diabetes. Fast-paced lifestyles and rising stress levels, exacerbated by the recent COVID-19 pandemic, underscore the importance of health and financial preparedness. Securing health insurance policy early, regardless of age, is quintessential in today’s fast paced era with rise in lifestyle-related diseases. Tata AIG remains steadfast in its commitment to championing the nation's health through offering innovative health insurance products focusing not only on medical treatment costs but also on managing one’s own health.”

Raghavendra Rao, Chief Distribution Officer, Future Generali India Insurance Company, has an important observation to share: "Diabetes is a silent global epidemic that requires our collective awareness and action. On this World Diabetes Day, let us strive to spread knowledge, compassion, and support, not only to manage this condition but to empower lives with healthier choices like regular exercise and healthy diet. Together, we can ensure a more vibrant and healthier future for everyone, with knowledge and insurance standing by our side.”
