Abstract

In view of the rising global burden of diabetes and obesity the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) embarked on a new initiative in 2014 to raise awareness about the link between hyperglycemia in pregnancy (HIP) and poor maternal and fetal outcomes, and the risk to the future health of the mothers with HIP and their offspring. FIGO brought together a group of experts to frame the issues and develop a document suggesting key actions to address the public health burden posed by HIP. The FIGO Initiative on gestational diabetes mellitus: A pragmatic guide for diagnosis, management, and care was launched at the FIGO World Congress in October 2015 in Vancouver and published as a special supplement to the International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics(1). The document provides pragmatic guidance for testing, management and care of women with GDM in relation to the resource settings and calls for a clearly defined global health agenda to tackle the issue on a world-wide scale.
