IDF’s projects and activities are the cornerstones of our advocacy actions. We aim to improve global access to diabetes care and promote diabetes prevention through targeted advocacy campaigns. To achieve this, we partner with expert UN agencies, leading international organisations, diabetes advocates and other key stakeholders.

Advocacy events

IDF advocacy events address diabetes-related challenges and are an opportunity to advocate for policies to improve the lives of people with diabetes and prevent the condition in those at risk.


IDF has hosted and co-hosted over 100 advocacy webinars on themes such as diabetes education, policymaker engagement, messaging and strategies, and universal health care (UHC).
