Mrs Lucia Mantilla “Being members of the International Diabetes Federation is an important factor for the job that we are doing transcends more in our country. The work of the IDF, the vast experience of its members and the international reputation of the organizations strengthens the labor that we perform locally to improve the quality of life of the people living with type 1 diabetes in Ecuador.
We are motivated by the idea of contributing with the objectives that the IDF pursues in favor of reaching prevention, treatment and cure of diabetes. We are convinced that the increment of people with diabetes worldwide requires actions, policies and coordinated strategies that let us face the pandemic from the local, regional and global perspectives.
It´s easier if we walk together!”
