Surely, we need much more than World Diabetes Day?
I am increasingly disillusioned by the effectiveness of the whole UN bureaucracy. It’s perhaps time to do a comprehensive cost benefit analysis and look to reforms? There are too many lobbies promoting vested interests and big decisions are blocked in the Security Council. It’s a very expensive debating chamber.
Let’s face it, a large part of the Diabetes crisis crisis is caused by Western food and drinks companies aggressively marketing addictive junk food and sugar products. See the Times of India article reporting on the introduction of a sugar tax.
Perhaps it’s time for Ban Ki-moon to step down and make way for a more robust leader?
