Rights and responsibilities

The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has developed the first ever Charter setting out the fundamental rights of the 415 million people currently living with diabetes.

The landmark document places the rights of people with diabetes, their parents and carers into three focus areas; the rights to care; information and education and social justice, whilst at the same time acknowledging the responsibilities held by people with diabetes.

The Charter is a powerful campaigning tool to counteract the discrimination and stigma millions of people with diabetes still face, largely due to ignorance and misconceptions surrounding the disease.
