Just one week to go to the IDF-PRIMER International Diabetes Summit, 2023

04 August 2023

IDF is delighted to announce that the IDF School of Diabetes will partner with Primer to deliver the IDF-PRIMER International Diabetes Summit, 2023. The Congress will be held from August 11th – 13th, at the Sheraton Grand Bangalore Hotel at Brigade Gateway.

This is the 9th consecutive year that the congress will bring together key stakeholders in the field of diabetes to network and exchange knowledge about the latest developments in diabetes.

Speakers at the congress will include renowned international thought leaders and senior representatives of the diabetes community in India.

The conference caters for participants from all fields of diabetes care and will provide practical tips and advice to help enhance care for people living with diabetes.

The carefully constructed programme of plenary sessions, keynote lectures, debates, workshops, and clinical case seminars will make for an exciting event that will address shifting trends in diabetes care, while providing the anticipated 1500 delegates in attendance the opportunity to gain valuable insights into the latest diabetes research.

Conference delegates will comprise Endocrinologists, Diabetologists, Physicians, Family Physicians, Post graduate students, Basic Scientists, Dietitians and other healthcare professionals.

The 2023 IDF-Primer Summit will be a hybrid event, allowing those who cannot attend in person to participate remotely.

Speaking just ahead of the Conference, Dr S. R. Aravind, Past President of the Research Society for Study of Diabetes in India, current President of DiabetesIndia and one of the driving forces behind the event told IDF: “An estimated 77 million people in India have diabetes, making the country second only to China in terms of prevalence. Despite the enormity of the problem, awareness remains pitifully low, particularly in rural areas.”

Results from the recently published National Study on Diabetes in India suggest that more than half the general population (57%) hadn’t even heard of diabetes.

Dr Aravind appealed to the healthcare professional community to do more: “If we are to help India do its part in meeting agreed goals on diabetes prevention and care, we must double down on efforts to raise awareness of diabetes and its risk factors. We are joining hands with IDF to educate and empower our doctors and community to prevent and manage diabetes. The condition presents a complex global challenge that will require local and regional strategies to deliver an appropriate national response.”
