IDF Europe is the European chapter of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). We are an umbrella organization representing 70 national diabetes organisations in 44 countries across Europe. We are a diverse and inclusive multicultural network of national diabetes associations, representing both people living with diabetes and healthcare professionals.

According to the IDF Diabetes Atlas, an estimated 59 million adults (20-79 years) were living with diabetes in the IDF Europe Region in 2019. The Region has the highest number of children and adolescents (0-19 years) with type 1 diabetes – 296,500 in total.
