IDF is the global reference for accurate, up-to-date estimates of the prevalence of diabetes and its burden on individuals and health economies. Our prevention initiatives aim to help stem the ever increasing incidence of type 2 diabetes and promote specific models of care and resources to support optimal management of people with diabetes.

The IDF Diabetes Atlas is the authoritative resource on the global burden of diabetes. First published in 2000, it is produced by IDF in collaboration with experts from around the world and contains data on diabetes cases, prevalence, mortality and expenditure on the global, regional and national level. A full IDF Diabetes Atlas report is produced every two years. The next edition of the IDF Diabetes Atlas will be published in November 2019.
