About

Since 1972, there were several independent groups of health care professionals and  people with diabetes in several cities in Indonesia with certain activities on diabetes education and diabetes care. In 1986, they decided to merge as a national organisation. These groups of people founded Persatuan Diabetes Indonesia (Indonesia Diabetes Association) as a non-profit, non governmental organisation.

The Association at this moment has 10 Regions, 106 Chapters, and 200 Units/Hospitals all over Indonesia.

Message from the President

Prof Sidartawan Soegondo "We are proud to be part of the IDF because we are able to share our activities, problems, experience and scientific needs with other member countries. We are understaffed and no sufficient health providers in the field of diabetes but still trying hard to be part of the world activities organized by the IDF".
