14 November is World Diabetes Day. With the theme “Eyes on Diabetes”, this year's activities and materials focus on promoting the importance of screening to ensure early diagnosis of type 2 diabetes and treatment to reduce the risk of serious complications.
Diabetes and cancer share many risk factors. The European CanCer Organisation – ECCO, stands together with the non-communicable diseases (NCDs) community and supports raising awareness about diabetes, driving policy change, and implementing prevention of type 2 diabetes at individual, national and international levels.
Through its 24 Member Societies - representing over 80 000 professionals - ECCO is the only multidisciplinary organisation that connects and responds to all stakeholders in oncology Europe-wide.
ECCO is a not-for-profit federation that exists to uphold the right of all European cancer patients to the best possible treatment and care, promoting interaction between all organisations involved in cancer at European level.
