The diabetes epidemic in Europe is still unknown by too many people. Raising awareness amongst all stakeholders involved, from policy makers to healthcare professionals and including people with diabetes and those at risk, is key to make a real change on diabetes.
Diabetes prevention, management and care, encouraging research and drive change at policy level: here are the messages of the awareness campaigns led by IDF Europe.
While our Members play a vital role in raising awareness on diabetes at national level, IDF Europe uses different channels to raise awareness on diabetes at pan-European level. Our awareness-raising activities include:
- Celebrate World Diabetes Day
- Support and promote IDF World Diabetes Day global campaign
- Produce evidence to raise awareness on diabetes
- Partnering with other stakeholders in diabetes and supporting specific initiatives
