IDF launches first charter for diabetes health rights

The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has launched the first ever Charter setting out the fundamental rights of more than 300 million people living with diabetes.

The landmark document, which forms part of IDF’s Advocacy Toolkit for the United Nations High-Level Summit on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), places the rights of people with diabetes, their parents and carers into three focus areas; the rights to care; information and education and social justice, whilst at the same time acknowledging the responsibilities held by people with diabetes.

Raising awareness about the rights of people with diabetes is a key element of IDF’s demand for coordinated and concerted international action to tackle the diabetes epidemic before, during and after the UN Summit on NCDs to be held this September in New York.
