IDF Europe extends heartfelt gratitude to European Parliament President, MEP Roberta Metsola for her support to EU citizen’s health

06 June 2024

As we approach a new mandate of the European Parliament, IDF Europe wishes to extend heartfelt gratitude to the European Parliament President, MEP Roberta Metsola, for her invaluable and continuous support to EU citizens’ health and the diabetes community.

Throughout her tenure as European Parliament President, MEP Metsola played a vital role in raising awareness of diabetes and advocating for better prevention and care for all people living with the condition across the EU.

In November 2022, the European Parliament’s motion for a resolution on the “Prevention, management, and better care of diabetes in the EU”, supported by President Metsola and receiving cross-party support, represented a crucial milestone for our community and an important step forward towards reversing the rising number of people living with diabetes, improving the management of condition and its complications and addressing inequalities in access to care and treatment across Europe.

We wish all the best to MEP Metsola in the EU Elections this week and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with the European Parliament and the other EU institutions to build on the progress made during the previous mandate. Together, we can strive to build a healthier Europe where all people living with diabetes and those at risk can live long and fulfilling lives.

IDF Europe also wishes to thank all its Member Associations, including the Maltese Diabetes Association and its President, Mr Chris Delicata, for their unfailing support to the diabetes community and IDF Europe’s advocacy work.
