Awareness of the seriousness and magnitude of the diabetes epidemic has heightened, resulting in increasing emphasis being placed on prevention. In the last decade, several major institutions have developed guidelines for prevention measures. The World Health Organization (WHO) developed the Action Plan on Prevention and Control of Non-Communicable Diseases in 2008, and a global strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health (DPAS) in 2004. These provide a framework within which governments can develop policies that promote healthy eating and increased physical activity.
