The ÖDG, the scientific society of diabetes experts in Austria, promotes research and scientific exchange between scientists/physicians in order to improve diabetes care and patients' quality of life. The aim is to build a bridge between health care professionals and patients. The ÖDG organises congresses, funds research and publications and develops guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of diabetes and its complications. On the occasion of the ÖDG's Annual and Spring Meetings, scientific news are presented and discussed as well as “state of the art” lectures and workshops offer well balanced information for physicians, dietitians and diabetes educators.

Message from the President
Prof. Hermann Toplak "The Austrian Diabetes Association regards the IDF as the most important international player for people with diabetes mellitus.
We carefully follow ideas and projects on a global level and try to learn from them.
Being a proactive organisation ourselves, we try to bring IDF projects to an national level. We think that we need to change our society and the detrimental environment to improve the quality of living for people with diabetes. Together with our government, we are working on a national diabetes strategy for the coming years."
