'Together we are stronger' is IDF Europe's motto. Our members joining forces is what allows us to exist and be a powerful advocate on diabetes at European level.
To further raise awareness, we closely collaborate with other stakeholders in diabetes at the European level but we also support a number of pan-European initiatives to make sure the voice of the millions of people living with diabetes in Europe is heard.
Collaboration with stakeholders in diabetes
Below please find a list of our close collaborators at European level:
EURADIA is an alliance of NGOs and pharmaceutical companies that advocates for diabetes research in Europe at the highest political and societal levels of influence.
FEND is a unique voice for nurses working in the field of diabetes care, research and education in Europe.
ISPAD is a professional organization whose aims are to promote clinical and basic science, research, education and advocacy in childhood and adolescent diabetes.
PCDE exists to provide a focal point for primary care clinicians and their patients. Its purpose is to promote high standards of care throughout Europe.
