World Thyroid Day (25 MAY) & International Thyroid Awareness
World Thyroid Day is an annual awareness day that was established in 2008 during the congress of the European Thyroid Association (ETA).

In 2008, Thyroid Federation International established and launched International Thyroid Awareness Week (MAY 25 - MAY 31) to promote international awareness and understanding of thyroid conditions and the challenges faced by individuals.

Around 1.6 billion people worldwide are thought to be at risk, with hundreds of millions living with a thyroid condition right now. Up to 60% of those living with a thyroid disorder are undiagnosed, and people may be needlessly struggling through their everyday lives without knowing the root cause of their symptoms.

However, once diagnosed, thyroid disorders are treatable, and the ITAW campaign is pushing hard to improve testing and diagnoses globally
