Diabetes Voice is the quarterly magazine of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). Established in 1954, Diabetes Voice is one of the Federation’s most important communications tools.

Diabetes Voice plays a unique role in the distribution of global diabetes information: it is the only magazine to report to the worldwide diabetes community. Diabetes Voice covers the latest in health policy, diabetes care and management, health economics, research, and living with diabetes. In 2010, we launched a new section on the global campaign for diabetes and started to feature IDF Member Associations.

Diabetes Voice is aimed at all people who can influence the promotion of diabetes care, prevention and a cure worldwide. It is addressed to people who have an interest in the improvement of health and healthcare in their community and the world.

These include:

  • Healthcare providers, including diabetologists, endocrinologists, general practitioners
  • Educators, nurses, dietitians, podiatrists, ophthalmologists, pharmacists
  • NCD associations and organisations
  • Healthcare decision-makers
  • People with diabetes
  • Universities and schools
