Calling the world to action on diabetes

Last update: 09/03/2017

IDF is gearing up for an exciting year. When heads of state convene at the UN headquarters in New York in September to discuss the scale of and solutions for diabetes and related non-communicable diseases (NCDs), we hope to witness commitments made as never before and a resource flow to match. The UN Summit on NCDs is undoubtedly the political opportunity of a lifetime for the global diabetes community. This is why IDF is launching a Year of Action for Diabetes. All activities this year will be geared around continuous, visible action for diabetes and we will issue a monthly advocacy-toaction newsletter to inform and update interested partners, share good practice and galvanize action as we move full speed ahead towards the UN Summit.
