Join us in Lisbon and online for the IDF World Diabetes Congress 2022. The congress will provide a unique forum for knowledge exchange and fostering the collaborations, connections and political actions required to keep diabetes at the top of the global health agenda. Abstract submission is open until June 17.
Obesity and type 2 diabetes: a joint approach to halt the rise
The rise of type 2 diabetes can only be halted if action on obesity is also prioritised. Our new policy brief with World Obesity Federation highlights the interconnected root causes of obesity and type 2 diabetes and provides advocates, health professionals and policymakers with recommendations on the actions required to prevent, manage and treat both conditions effectively.
IDF is deeply concerned by the crisis in Ukraine and is closely monitoring the situation to ensure that emergency relief is provided to people living with diabetes in the country and refugees in neighbouring countries. IDF Member Direct Relief has mobilised its resources to support medical needs as they become known.
