Mobilising for diabetes
One of IDF Europe's main activities is Policy and advocacy and perform both at European and at regional-national level.
At European level, our main targets of IDF Europe are the EU Institutions (European Parliament and European Commission), the Council of Europe and the World Health Organization European Region.
At national level, the Federation acts as a bridge for its Members by informing them on the latest policy developments Europe-wide. This way, national members can perfom their policy and advocay activities at natinal level, taking EU level ones as a reference.
Here're the IDF Europe events for this year’s World Diabetes Day (WDD) at European Institutions:
The objective of the high-level debates and exhibitions of WDD 2017 is to facilitate a discussion between MEPs, the Commission and IDF Europe members on how to develop a European strategy to prevent diabetes and complications that arise from it.
