IDF call to action on occasion of the 2018 UN High Level Meeting on NCDs

HLM toolkit 350pxIDF is currently involved in intensive advocacy efforts around the UN High Level Meeting (HLM) on NCDs that will take place in September 2018. This is the moment to demand greater action at the national level to:

  • Achieve a 0% increase in diabetes prevalence by 2025;
  • Achieve 80% access to essential medicines and devices by 2025 and Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by 2030;
  • Achieve a 30% reduction in diabetes-related premature mortality by 2030;
  • Listen to the priorities of people with diabetes and defend their rights.

It will only be possible to achieve these objectives if the entire global diabetes community works together. To this end, IDF has developed an advocacy toolkit, so that its Members and everyone else interested in national advocacy can develop country-tailored campaigns. IDF has also prepared template documents to be tailored according to the national realities. You can download all these documents by clicking on the picture on your right.
