Asociación para el Cuidado de la Diabetes en Argentina CUI.D.AR is a nonprofit organization that works for children and young people with type 1 diabetes developing educational and informational activities of support for both the person living with diabetes, and their family, school and social environment.
CUI.D.AR does not provide direct medical care, but their intervention affects the quality of treatment, education, better access to better care and general welfare of the person with this chronic condition, their family and environment. CUI.D.AR also creates social awareness of the condition and works strongly on advocacy, defending rights and incidence in public policies.
CUI.D.AR's main focus is to minimize the impact of diabetes on the lives of people living with this condition and to improve their quality of life.
At a global level, CUI.D.AR also has three representatives within the “Young Leaders in Diabetes” Program of IDF and our director and founder is a Member of the Blue Circle Voices (BCV), an IDF network that acts as a global voice for people living with diabetes.

Message from the President
Mr Santiago Valcarenghi: "My name is Santiago Valcarenghi and I am currently the President of CUI.D.AR. It is certainly an honour for CUI.D.AR to join the International Diabetes Federation in the incredible work they do in support of people with diabetes around the world. We dream of a world without diabetes, but while this does not happen, we hope to help raise the voice of people living with this chronic condition, particularly children and young people in order to achieve a healthy, full and happy life.".
