About

Associazione Italiana per la Difesa degli Interessi dei Diabetici (AID) -Italian Diabetic Association, is the oldest volunteer organization dedicated to the protection and care of people with diabetes. It was founded in 1952, when diabetes was still a little known disease but on the other hand much feared, by Professor Silvestro Silvestri, diabetologist and research chemist. Raffaele Scalpone doctor and person with diabetes, is the President of AID since 2007.
 
AID has always been very active in promoting information, education and support for people with diabetes, increasing the sensitivity of health authorities and institutions. Specifically, AID worked trying to educate and inform the people who were affected by the disease and their families to improve their quality of life both from the medical point of view as well as social.
 
AID, the name of which, not surprisingly, means Italian Association for the defense of the interests of people with diabetes, more and more want to continue to protect their rights. For this reason, AID has recently teamed up with Federanziani with the goal of creating the registry of health for diabetics. The intent is to collect, in full respect of privacy, data on patients with diabetes by creating a database with demographic and epidemiological information. A tool that allows you to better protect the right to health of people with diabetes by promoting access to the best care, medical devices and more effective treatment protocols.
