World Diabetes Day 2016

As part of our corporate social responsibility, we at Broadway Bakery Ltd. earlier this year launched a countrywide campaign dubbed #BeSugarSmart to sensitive Kenyans on the dangers of consuming too much sugar and to promote healthy lifestyles. Data shows that Kenya is one of the most afflicted countries in the world in diseases caused by excessive sugar consumption.

The prevalence of lifestyle diseases are increasingly becoming a health crisis in Kenya and now affect an estimated 1.6 million Kenyans and account for 27% of deaths of Kenyans aged between 30 and 70 years according to The Ministry of Health Annual Status Report.
In 2015 alone, the International Diabetes Federation reported that 15,000 Kenyans died from diabetes and half a million new cases were reported. Yet, it is estimated that for every diagnosed diabetes sufferer at present, more than twice as many sufferers have the disease unknown to them, leaving it unmanaged and ultimately generating severe secondary conditions and heavy healthcare costs.
World Diabetes Day this year is on Monday 14th November 2016. The theme for this year is ‘Eyes on Diabetes’ with activities and materials focusing on promoting the importance of screening to ensure early diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes and treatment to reduce the risk of serious complications.
