IDF produces advocacy tools and resources to empower diabetes advocates. Use our resources to put the compelling diabetes case to policy-makers and convince them to take action.
Advocacy Guide to the Political Declaration
To ensure commitments made in the Political Declaration of the Summit become health realities, IDF produced a unique Advocacy Guide to the Political Declaration. This provides guidance on how to use the political declaration at national and regional levels to turn commitments into action on the ground.
This series explores important and emerging diabetes issues, integrates diabetes with existing development priorities, and identifies future implications for policy development. Use these briefs to help build and inform relationships with governments, UN agencies and other health and development communities.
Diabetes and Climate Change
Diabetes and climate change are two urgent challenges in the 21st century. IDF has produced a pioneering policy report that establishes both the interconnections between these global risks and the opportunity to combat them together. Launched at Rio+20, the Diabetes and Climate Change Report puts diabetes, NCDs and health at the heart of sustainable development.

Diabetes Roadmap to the UN Summit
The Roadmap was IDF’s dedicated response plan to the Summit, which outlined our key objectives, deliverables and strategy for the Summit.
Diabetes Roadmap to the Future Development Agenda
Following in the footsteps of the landmark IDF Diabetes Roadmap Programme that was dedicated to securing strong diabetes outcomes from the UN Summit on NCDs, IDF has designed a successor programme for the period 2012-2015. The Roadmap will therefore build on the IDF UN Summit campaign and maximise the opportunity to integrate diabetes and NCDs into the future development agenda.

The first milestone in the Diabetes Roadmap to the UN Summit programme and efforts towards the UN Summit, the Call to Action establishes headline messages on the urgent need to invest in diabetes.
IDF’s advocacy toolkit for the Summit aimed to empower our member associations to engage in the advocacy process around the Summit. It remains valuable today with strategies for effective diabetes advocacy, campaigning and continuing political momentum.
