Message from the President

Diabetes as a non-communicable disease is reaching epidemic levels all around the world and hence there is a need to scale up on public awareness, prevention and treatment. Bangladesh is no exception to this global trend. For a country like Bangladesh, where the epidemiology of the disease is shifting from a communicable to a non-communicable pattern very drastically, international support and collaboration is needed.

Therefore, as a leading NCD activist, Eminence felt the need to integrate with IDF. Eminence found a lot of potential and willingness within IDF to make a big difference in the field of diabetes prevention and control. Eminence seeks the support of IDF in diabetes research and policy advocacy. In return, IDF can work as an international platform for Eminence to share knowledge and information regarding diabetes prevention and control. As a member of IDF, Eminence would like to take the opportunity to become more visible as an organisation and reinforce our international reliability.
