World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by IDF and the World Health Organization in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threat posed by diabetes. World Diabetes Day became an official United Nations Day in 2006 with the passage of United Nation Resolution 61/225.

The campaign is represented by a blue circle logo that was adopted in 2007 after the passage of the UN Resolution on diabetes.  It signifies the unity of the global diabetes community.
