IDF has an extensive network of advocates and supporters, who are key in the success of the IDF advocacy campaigns and activities. The IDF Members, Blue Circle Voices and Young Leaders in Diabetes are instrumental in sharing our key messages at the global level and in promoting our campaigns at the national and regional levels.
IDF's network of Members in 168 countries provides an authoritative global voice, working to ensure that the needs of all people affected by diabetes are met so that each can live their lives as unhindered by the disease as possible. You can read more about the IDF Members here.
