IDF Europe hybrid event: "Type 2 Diabetes: A Preventable Catastrophe?"

21 June 2023

On June 6, 2023, IDF Europe held a hybrid event in Media Partnership with EURACTIV to officially launch its new publication, “Type 2 Diabetes: a preventable catastrophe?”. During the event, panellists representing academia, healthcare professionals (HCPs), people living with Type 2 Diabetes (T2D), industry and policy makers discussed why we urgently need to re-design our healthcare systems across Europe and remove the barriers that are preventing early and tight management of T2D and its associated risk factors.

Watch the recording of the event

T2D is responsible for more than one million premature deaths in Europe each year. This is the equivalent of three jumbo jets crashing every single day – a tragedy we would never accept. We simply cannot accept the same number of people dying prematurely because of potentially preventable diabetes-related complications.

We can do something about that. And we must.
