Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre
World Diabetes Congress 2011
The IDF World Diabetes Congress is the congress of choice for everybody concerned about the diabetes epidemic. By convening, we can deliver clear global messages on diabetes and make diabetes visible and understood by governments.
The location and date of the next World Diabetes Congress are crucial: for the first time the congress will be taking place in the Middle East and North Africa Region, a region enormously affected by diabetes. It is being held at an important global juncture for diabetes and non-communicable diseases (NCDs), shortly following the United Nations High Level Summit on Non-Communicable Diseases in September 2011. The summit will be a catalyst for major change at global level, potentially leading to firm commitments from governments on how to tackle diabetes and other NCDs.
The World Diabetes Congress will continue the momentum from this pivotal high-level meeting, reflecting on successes in the lead up to the UN Summit, and taking stock on the outcomes and implementation requirements for governments and international organizations.
