IDF Europe is delighted to announce that we will be hosting a webinar titled ‘Leveraging Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic – The Need for an Inclusivity Shift’. This event will include a presentation of the results of our Diabetes & COVID-19 Survey that was launched late last year. We will discuss how health systems should not only focus on building back fairer, but also on building back more inclusive. COVID-19 has unveiled the inequalities that many face in accessing healthcare and achieving optimal health outcomes in Europe, and these issues cannot go unaddressed in a post-pandemic world. Click here to register and join us on Thursday, April 22 at 12.00 p.m. CEST.
Hello! It is World Health Day, and it is time to “build a fairer, healthier world for everyone everywhere'. Today, it is also time to think about the new normal and how to “ensure that all people are able to access quality health services when and where they need them”.
Tuesday, 13 April will mark the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan. Fasting (Sawn or Roza) during this 29–30-day period is one of the five pillars of Islam and commemorates the time when the Holy Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Fasting is mandatory for all Muslim adults, with the exception of certain groups, including some people with chronic conditions such as diabetes. Due to the metabolic nature of the condition, people living with diabetes are at increased risk of developing complications associated with changes in food and liquid intake.
