Worldwide, diabetes afflicts more than 380 million people. The World Health Organisation estimates that by 2030, the number of people suffering from the disease will more than double. In Oman, over 14% of the population is currently living with diabetes. With the figure in the Sultanate rising, it is fitting that the charitable organisation chosen to benefit from this year’s Al Mouj Muscat Marathon Charity 5k run is the Oman Diabetes Association.

Playing a key role in the country’s action to fight the disease, the Oman Diabetes Association works to actively improve the lives of the Sultanate’s citizens who are currently sufferers. It also endeavours to avert the onset of type 2 Diabetes, which is common in Oman and links closely to factors such as poor nutritional choices and insufficient physical activity. Offering a wide range of awareness, education and support activities, the Oman Diabetes Association uses its high profile in the community to promote the importance of living a healthy, active lifestyle.
