IDF is partnering with the Indian non-profit organisation HRIDAY for the fourth edition of the Global Youth Meet (GYM), which will take place in April 2021.
HRIDAY promotes health among and through youth with actions focused on community development and the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Diabetes and COVID-19 are featured on the agenda of GYM 2021, which has the theme “Youth lead the way towards NCD targets and the SDGs.” As a GYM partner, IDF will lead several workshops on the impact of diabetes in young people and the role of youth in advocating for diabetes prevention and care.
GYM 2021 will conclude with the adoption of concrete and time-bound youth-centric regional action plans, including activities to strengthen health systems. Progress on the action plans will be evaluated at the next GYM.
