The event, which was celebrated on Sunday 14 November 2021, was also attended by staff from the Nakuru County Health Department led by Dr. Benedict Osore. Dr. Osore, who was the chief guest at the event, is the Director of Medical Services for Nakuru County. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), the global theme for 2021-2023 World Diabetes Day is ‘Access to Diabetes Care’.
