 "Collaboration between industry and health care professionals benefit patients"

EFPIA website www.efpia.eu October 2018   

Dear Exhibitor

The relationship between the healthcare professional and the pharmaceutical industry is based on an exchange of information and this is what the IDF Congress is all about.

We believe in the value of face-to-face education and personal exchange. This will again be showcased at the IDF Congress 2019 in Busan, Korea - 2- 6 December 2019 - which will provide opportunities for peer-to-peer interactions with representatives from all sectors of the global diabetes community.

Whether you joined us at past IDF Congresses or consider participating for the first time, we firmly believe that the IDF Congress 2019 in Busan will be beneficial for both you and our delegates.

The IDF Congress has become one of the largest international medical events in diabetes, bringing together thousands of healthcare professionals, hundreds of world-renowned speakers, more than 50 national and international exhibitors and representatives from IDF’s member network in over 160 countries.

The IDF 2019 programme will feature up to ten parallel sessions spread over various streams, tackling all aspects of diabetes, from Basic and Clinical Science to Education and Public Health to Advocacy and Living with diabetes. The IDF congress also provides young researchers with exposure to an international professional audience, allowing them to become multipliers in their region and daily practice.

A virtual walk will familiarize yourself with BEXCO, the IDF 2019 venue. The IDF Congress will stretch across the Auditorium, the Convention Hall and Exhibition Center I.
All relevant statistics to help you better understand the IDF 2019 audience and programme is available in our congress library.

There are currently over 200 million women living with diabetes and this total is projected to increase to more than 300 million by 2040. Diabetes is the ninth leading cause of death in women globally, causing 2.1 million deaths each year. Gender roles and power dynamics influence vulnerability to diabetes, affect access to health services and health seeking behaviour for women, and amplify the impact of diabetes on women.

To mark World Diabetes Day 2017, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) cordially invites you to a high-level stakeholder event that will focus on key themes of importance to the diabetes agenda through the prism of women. It will aim to highlight the importance of affordable and equitable access to screening, diabetes medicines and technologies, education and information for women living with diabetes and those at risk, and promote the role of women and girls as key influencers in the adoption of healthy lifestyles.

The event will also serve as a forum to promote two global initiatives of IDF:

  • The release of the IDF Diabetes Atlas 8th Edition – www.diabetesatlas.org – providing the latest data on the number of people living with diabetes worldwide. 
  • IDF’s Call to Action #RIGHT2HEALTH, which aims to deliver key advocacy information and request recognition and renewal of commitments that governments have agreed to ahead of the UN High Level Review on Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), scheduled to take place in September 2018.
