What does it take to empower people with diabetes, improve outcomes and rethink diabetes care?
Viewpoint Story by Peter Schwarz, Chair of the EUDF Self-care, Technology & Digitalization Strategic Forum.
Join the European Diabetes Forum
We invite all stakeholders in the European diabetes landscape to join the European Diabetes Forum (EUDF). Together we will speak with one strong voice to improve diabetes care and make policy makers aware of the urgent and problematic diabetes situation in Europe.
We enable healthcare systems to cope with the diabetes pandemic, while achieving the best possible outcomes for patients.
Ensure the translation of research into policy actions towards better diabetes care at national level.
Who We Are
The European Diabetes Forum aims to improve outcomes for people with diabetes, and unite stakeholders from across the diabetes landscape in Europe. This includes, policy makers, research, scientific societies, patient organisations, nurse associations, institutions connected to diabetes related
co-morbidities, industry, governments, regulators, payers,
and many more.
We will provide the platform for these stakeholders to collaborate and to improve how we, as societies, manage diabetes and jointly advocate for policy change that enables our healthcare systems to cope with the diabetes pandemic. We will support European and national stakeholders in driving a policy conversation, take concrete action to improve diabetes care, and provide a central point of contact for diabetes policy in Europe.
A Call to Action
We call out to all stakeholders in the diabetes landscape, on a European and national level, to collaborate to advance the agenda of diabetes and advocate for policy change. Unite behind this Call to Action which outlines the urgent and problematic diabetes situation in Europe, the underlying causes, and the directions for solutions. Together we need to enable healthcare systems to cope with the diabetes pandemic.
