Hand on tablet devices has individually painted the portraits of women from all over the world. They will be published on the internet and via websites to engage members of the general public and mobilize them to support World Diabetes.

From today, the portraits will be showcased over the Ascensia Diabetes Care Facebook, Twitter and Instagram social media stations, along with videos revealing the painting of every artwork. The women showcased in the Ascensia campaign comprise patients, journalists, scientists, healthcare professionals, caregivers and employees from Ascensia Diabetes Care and associate firm Panasonic Healthcare. The entire set of portraits can also be accessible at

The World Diabetes Day theme highlights that diabetes is still a international health issue for women. By means of this theme the International Diabetes Federation is currently encouraging the importance of affordable and equitable access for women with diabetes. Currently, one in 10 women around the world live with diabetes[1]. Many don’t have access to care, treatment or the right education, leading to handled diabetes, which may lead to serious complications. More than 199 million women are living with diabetes, a figure that is expected to grow to 313 million by 2040[1].

Michael Kloss, President and CEO of Ascensia Diabetes Care said: “We’re excited to be celebrating World Diabetes Day 2017 by showcasing the wonderful women who have experienced a deep impact on diabetes. As a company that are concentrated just on diabetes, we’re proud to give our support to raising awareness of this condition and the better way to celebrate World Diabetes Day than highlighting inspirational women that have and will continue to generate a significant difference for individuals with diabetes. We expect that the artworks of these inspiring women will capture the attention of the general public and help to raise awareness of diabetes globally on this critical consciousness day”

He added: “The accomplishments of this diverse and large group of women are incredible and between them they have made enormous contributions to the area of diabetes. But, we should not forget. The women who have been profiled here, represent the countless patients, doctors, nurses, researchers, caregivers and advocates who work tirelessly each and every day to advance the treatment and management of diabetes”
