Strategic Forums

EUDF wants to offer specific, achievable policy recommendations in three key areas:

  • The use of health data to define, measure and achieve better outcomes;
  • Empowering people with diabetes through digital technologies and innovative therapies; and
  • Rethinking health systems to focus on primary and integrated care

EUDF established 3 Strategic Forums with experts to generate policy recommendations and ideas for implementation to allow discussions and engage on concrete projects with stakeholders and policy makers both at EU and national level.
