Final Banner WDD 2013

A healthy lifestyle is essential for diabetes prevention and optimal diabetes management. Join IDF Europe to raise awareness of diabetes and the benefits of a healthy diet and physical activity on World Diabetes Day at the European Parliament in Brussels.

With the support of Sarah Ludford MEP, IDF Europe will organize for the second time this year a week-long campaign to raise awareness of diabetes on the 3 sites of the European Parliament in Brussels and Luxembourg from 11 to 15 November and in Strasbourg from 18 to 22 November.

A special focus will be brought this year on the IDF Europe study on Access to medicines and medical devices for diabetes care in Europe. Coming at a time when the issue of access to healthcare and the sustainability of healthcare systems is high on the European political agenda, the study identifies the main barriers and inequalities for access to diabetes care in Europe and intends to provide evidence to policy makers and stakeholders to address some of the challenges raised by the diabetes epidemic. Join a panel of experts to discuss the study findings at our breakfast debate on Wednesday 13 November. RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots.
