Engage in the ongoing discussion on 

Diabetes advocacy funding in developing countries!

D-NET is inviting a series of speakers from the IDF Congress 2019 to give a sneak peek of their session. For the Living with Diabetes stream, we have invited Prof. Sana Ajmal to speak about 'Diabetes Advocacy funding in developing countries'.

Diabetes advocacy is a need of the day. However, where to find funding for supporting it?

The way diabetes is perceived in society, health care systems and public policy poses a set of often ignored problems on top of so many already critical issues in developing countries. Effective planning and development require time and discussions with all stakeholders, but because of such challenges, stakeholder involvement is the very think they put behind their backs.

How supportive are governments and the media to stakeholder involvement in your countries?

Do you think factors such as young age and lack of experience are an impediment in getting advocates recognized and heard?

  Read others thoughts and share your opinion!  

We look forward to connecting with you on D-NET!
If you would like to suggest a topic or become a D-NET discussion leader, do not hesitate to contact us at d-net@idf.org!
