Message from the President

Mrs Wannee Nitiyanant “Membership of IDF has given me an opportunity to exchange ideas and new insights for moving the society. The inspiration of global movement on diabetes urged me to work locally with confidence. It has been a great pleasure to see development and improvement on diabetes prevention and care in the country. Joining World Diabetes Day campaign activity each year certainly stimulates interest and awareness of the public on the burden of diabetes. Hopefully, the national standard for prevention and care of diabetes will soon be implemented nationwide.”
