Message from the President

Prof. Ramahandridona "Being a member of the IDF is essential for AMADIA .  From this membership, we gain all the basics that drive our survival: international recognition;  global visibility; a network which permits us to share our problems, our solutions – unity is strength; dealing with the specific nightmares that haunt the lives of people with diabetes living in a poor country;  the warmth of medicine focused on the patient and culture. Our greatest wish is that this collaboration with IDF continues for a long time".
