Producing the evidence

Conducting surveys, publishing reports and supporting research are essential to develop our evidence-based advocacy and to raise awareness on diabetes amongst the different audiences we want to reach. 

There is no questionning that diabetes is a public health priority. IDF Europe has developped several publications to inform all the stakeholders involved in diabetes about the extent of the epidemic, what is being done and what still needs to be done to counter it:

• Access to Quality Medicines and Medical Devices for Diabetes Care in Europe

The IDF Europe study on Access to Quality Medicines and Medical Devices for Diabetes Care in Europe highlights disparities in access to medicines and devices for diabetes care in the 47 countries of the IDF Europe Region.
The first of its kind in the field of diabetes, this study aims to provide evidence to policy makers and stakeholders on the current challenges faced by people living with diabetes in terms of access to the treatment they need. Click here to access the report.

• Diabetes : The Policy Puzzle
