Japan Association for Diabetes Education and Care (JADEC) was established in 1961. It is composed of medical personnel and diabetic patients and their families, and has 1,600 local groups with almost 15,000 members.

The association is promoting a nationwide campaign of diabetes and its complications. In 2013, JADEC was awarded the status of a Public Interest Incorporated Association by the Prime Minister in acknowledgement of our activities to inform diabetic patients and would-be-patients with correct knowledge and educational activities for healthcare providers in charge of diabetes treatment and education.

Message from the President

“As a member of the IDF, one can learn the development trend in diabetes around the world and put this acquired knowledge to use in Japan.  In addition, as a member of the WPR, one can participate in activities to reduce the number of people with diabetes in Asia. As a member of JADEC, it is something to be proud of.”
