On May 23, IDF held a hybrid event in Geneva, during the 76th World Health Assembly, that looked at the potential of the WHO Global Diabetes Compact to unite global efforts in preventing diabetes, reducing diabetes risks and ensuring equitable and affordable access to treatment and care by 2030.

An expert panel of healthcare professionals, institutional representatives and people living with diabetes explored challenges to accessing care and medicines. At the core of the discussion was the role of diabetes associations and people living with diabetes in shaping policies.
