Make every step count - Going beyond together. World Diabetes Day 2011

by Euro RSCG Life Medicom for Sanofi Diabetes

Summary of work

Diabetes is an escalating public health issue worldwide and the incidence of both Type 1 and Type 2 are growing as a global pandemic, representing a strong unmet need.

Sanofi Diabetes is committed to improving public health through education, with a goal to improve diabetes management and prevention all around the world. In order to do this, Sanofi partnered with the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) for World Diabetes Day (WDD) to enforce key educational messages with a complementary campaign: Make Every Step Count (MESC), to motivate people across the world to adopt a healthier lifestyle and encourage activity in a fun and inclusive way.

The MESC campaign was rolled-out across 34 countries, reaching over 100 million people worldwide, raising money for diabetes charities and motivating an active lifestyle, collecting over 1.25 million kilometres by people ‘Acting on diabetes’.
