World Diabetes Day is observed on 14 November. For 2009 - 2013, the theme of World Diabetes Day is "Diabetes Education and Prevention", which aims to raise public awareness of diabetes risks and control.

Diabetes is a significant economic burden for public health systems worldwide. The map shows the estimated health (health care and prevention) expenditure for diabetes by country in 2010. As depicted by graduated colours, North American and European countries are allotting a higher percentage of health expenditure on diabetes than those in Africa. This can also be a reflection of the national priorities in controlling diabetes over other disease conditions. The banknote symbols show the top 30 countries in actual spending for diabetes.

Data for this map were obtained from a research report of International Diabetes Federation.

每年11月14日是世界糖尿病日。世界糖尿病日以教育和預防為題,藉以提升公眾對糖尿病風險及控制的認知。

糖尿病為全球公共衛生系統帶來沉重的經濟負擔。地圖顯示2010年各國用於糖尿病的估計醫療(包含公共衛生)開支。依圖中顏色所示,北美及歐洲國家的開支比例,一般較非洲地區為高。地圖顏色同時反映了各國對控制糖尿病所取的優先次序。紙幣符號標示了全球三十個糖尿病醫療開支最高國家的估計所涉金額。
