Diabetes NZ Auckland Branch and friends celebrate World Health Day at One Tree Hill

April 7th marks the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) World Health Day, which this year focuses on diabetes. To celebrate the day and to raise awareness of what is a significant health issue in Auckland, Diabetes NZ Auckland Branch staff and members of our network met at One Tree Hill to welcome in the day with a #Dawn4Diabetes photograph.

There are nearly 100,000 people living with diabetes in Auckland, with an 8% increase in diagnosis every year. Whether it’s type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes, Diabetes NZ Auckland Branch is working hard to raise awareness of diabetes and to help support those living with it.
