Health institutions in Estonia raise awareness about diabetes on World Health Day 2016

To mark World Health Day 2016, the WHO Country Office in Estonia, in cooperation with the Ministry of Social Affairs, developed a press release on diabetes, which was shared with local and national media. The aim of this press release was to raise awareness about diabetes and to increase knowledge about risk factors, prevention and timely detection of this disease.

Many institutions, including the North Estonia Medical Centre's Blood Centre and the Tallinn Social Welfare and Health Care Department, organized promotional activities to raise awareness about diabetes. The National Institute for Health Development and the Ministry of Social Affairs also developed social media campaigns on diabetes.
