The International Diabetes Federation has two global networks dedicated to promoting exchanges about diabetes education.
These forums are:
- Diabetes Education Network for Health Professionals (D-NET) 
- International Diabetes Federation Reference Centres for Diabetes Education (IDF-RCDE) 
D-NET is the first international forum aimed at enhancing diabetes education and management around the globe. It is a place for health professionals to connect, find support, share best practices, and discover learning opportunities. D-NET is also designed to provide members access to emerging evidence and diabetes resources.
International Diabetes Federation Centres of Education (IDFCE) are designated by the International Diabetes Federation. IDF has now renamed the 'IDFCE' to 'IDF Reference Centers for Diabetes Education' - (IDF-RCDE), and revised the criteria, terms and conditions. They provide a forum for selected institutions to connect and exchange ideas and form a global community dedicated to advancing diabetes education at national and global levels.
