Like many of its fellows, the Dutch Diabetes Association (DDA) is faced with a growing number of people with diabetes — currently nearly 1 million out of a total population of 16 million people. About 58,000 of these people with diabetes are members of the DDA . In order to support members’ diabetes management, and attract new members, the DDA has developed several Internet-based applications to reach out directly to increasing numbers of people. In our 65-year history, we have evolved from an organization that secured insulin for people with diabetes into an organization with ties to the general public, politicians and policymakers, insurers and a range of other stakeholders.
