Summary of Project
Nowadays diabetes, due to its frequency and the problems it caused, appears as a prevalent health problem all over the World. Along with rapid change in life-styles in all developing and developed societies, the prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes increases quickly. Depending on mistakes in nutrition and life-styles, prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes increases among the children and the young.
It is estimated that the number of 450 million adults with diabetes in 2016 will move to 642 million in the year 2040. Thus, in 2040 one of each 10 adults is estimated to be diabetes in 2040. However, the occasion in our country is more desperate. If it progresses like this, it is expected to be the first tenth country in the world according to its population with diabetes.
With the light of these information, we have created this Project as to contribute to decrease the number of people with diabetes and to promote the awareness of people about the diabetes. Considering 7th of April is Health Day in the World, we planned to perform Project activities between 1-8 april in Mersin. Mersin is, with its economical growth and tourism potencies, one of the important cities of our country. Meanwhile, a huge step has been taken by building one of the biggest City Hospital in the World. Beside its functionality, essential informative activities will ensure to pave the way of healthier Mersin.
Through this Project, it is expected that participants and individuals in the target group will have noticed that diabetes rates reached dangerous levels in our country and the World, figure out the urgency of having measures in this area. Besides, that there is no age-limit to acquire a healthy life style and importance of having a healthy life-style to protect from health problems will be understood.
The participants and individuals in the target groups are expected to assume the functioning and importance of sustained politics and support improved politics in health area. They are expected to understand EU opportunities better, and gain positive beliefs in EU and its future.
