Last update: 29/01/2019

Taking Diabetes to Heart is a multi-country study, developed by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) in partnership with Novo Nordisk, focused on CVD awareness and knowledge among people living with type 2 diabetes. The study - the first of its kind in the world - builds on the IDF global report on Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease (2016), which includes recommendations to reduce the burden of CVD among people with diabetes and the general population.

The aim of Taking Diabetes to Heart is to define the actions that are required to promote knowledge and awareness of cardiovascular disease among people living with type 2 diabetes, to improve their health outcomes and address systemic challenges to healthcare systems.
