Many children with diabetes face discrimination in the school environment, it affects their self-esteem, productivity and management of their disease. Children who are not able to manage their condition safely and securely at school may be at greater risk of complications from diabetes.

The Kids and Diabetes in School Project (KiDS) aims to foster a safe and supportive environment that creates a better understanding of diabetes and supports children with the condition. It also provides information about type 2 diabetes and how it can be prevented by making effective lifestyle choices.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a severe and neglected threat to maternal and child health. Many women with GDM experience pregnancy related complications including high blood pressure, large birth weight babies and obstructed labour. A significant number of women with GDM also go on to develop type 2 diabetes resulting in further healthcare complications and costs. 

GDM facts:

  • In 2015, there were an estimated 199,5 million women with diabetes. By 2030, this number is expected to rise to 313,3 million.
  • Two out of every five women with diabetes are of reproductive age, accounting for over 60 million women worldwide.
  • IDF estimates that 20.9 million or 16.2% of live births to women in 2015 had some form of hyperglycaemia in pregnancy. An estimated 85.1% were due to gestational diabetes, 7.4% due to other types of diabetes first detected in pregnancy and 7.5$ due to diabetes detected prior to pregnancy.
  • One in seven births is affected by gestational diabetes.
  • The prevalence of hyperglycaemia in pregnancy increases rapidly with age and is highest in women over the age of 45.

The International Diabetes Federation offers two types of corporate partnerships:

  • Global partners are engaged in multi-year, strategic partnerships. In addition to IDF core activities, they also support tailored specific diabetes programmes.
  • Corporate supporters actively contribute to IDF's work and activities to promote diabetes care, prevention and a cure worldwide. They also participate in joint efforts to strengthen global awareness and advocacy efforts.

Our partnerships are unique with tailored platforms to address the individual needs and mission of each partner. Together, we design the best possible partnership that will leverage your assets and resources to address your corporate social responsibility objectives and make a difference in the lives of people with diabetes. 

Please consider the following opportunities as a starting outline:

Join the IDF Corporate Partnership Programme – become an Official Partner of World Diabetes Day

Our Corporate Partnership Programme is the starting point of all relationships with IDF. Through this Programme, our partners support IDF’s global leading role in advocacy and policy, as well as the World Diabetes Day campaign, the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign reaching a global audience of over one billion people in more than 160 countries. The campaign draws attention to issues of paramount importance to the diabetes world and keeps diabetes firmly in the public spotlight. World Diabetes Day is an official United Nations World Day which is celebrated every year on 14 November. It involves millions of people worldwide in diabetes advocacy and awareness efforts.

As an “Official Partner of World Diabetes Day”, you become part of a global grassroots campaign. It is a unique platform that allows you to engage your employees and your communities in local efforts which ultimately transcend borders to drive a worldwide increase in diabetes awareness.

IDF’s Life for a Child Programme is a fast-growing international programme providing vital care close to  14,000 children with diabetes in 46 developing countries around the world.

Through your contribution to “Life for a Child”, you support the children’s immediate needs (such as insulin, syringes, needles, blood glucose monitoring material, training, education and appropriate medical care) which will enable them to survive and improve their quality of life. In addition, you help us further expand this life-saving programme in the years to come to reach the thousands of poor children in need of essential medicines.
