MEPs Mobilising for Diabetes (MMD), the MEP Interest Group on Diabetes held a webinar to launch its ‘Blueprint for Action on Diabetes in the European Union by 2030’ on Thursday, February 25. Watch the recording below.
MMD was established in November 2020 under co-chairs MEPs Sirpa Pietikäinen and Christel Schaldemose. The group aims to elevate diabetes on the EU political agenda, promote understanding of the multi-faceted nature of the disease, dispel common misperceptions, and foster EU policy measures and action through close collaboration with the Commission/Council/individual Member States.
The Blueprint for Action on Diabetes in the European Union outlines the priorities that need to be addressed over the next ten years in order to flatten the curve on the diabetes pandemic, improve the lives of people living with diabetes and reduce health inequalities across Europe.
