Message from the President

Mr Gérard Raymond "For our Federation, IDF is primarily a window on the world  of diabetes.

We also have the feeling that at our level, our involvement contributes to the visibility and credibility of IDF and its actions. The implementation of our various associations provides IDF with a global coverage and sets IDF as a privileged partner of the major global causes.
Our Federation benefits from this reputation locally and accepts the values ​​defined by IDF. It relays to the French government global recommendations related to diabetes, as defined by international organizations through the intervention of IDF."
