Healthy youth are key to achieve sustainable development

At the International Diabetes Federation European Region (IDF Europe), youth living with diabetes are at the core of our activities and strategy. We are convinced that young people must play a leading role to ensure better care and a better life for people with diabetes of all ages in Europe. For example, in July 2016, 23 young people with diabetes from as many European countries took part in the annual IDF Europe Youth Leadership Camp in Agros, Cyprus[1].
