The European Policy Action Network on Diabetes - ExPAND - is a policy and advocacy programme led by IDF Europe. As part of its aim to encourage policy action on diabetes, the ExPAND network published a Policy Toolkit. The toolkit provides a one-stop resource covering the economic case for investment in diabetes, evidence of what works, and best practice from across Europe and practical steps for leading and developing new diabetes policies fit for purpose. Key topics include prevention, self-management, innovation and person-centred care. There are also dedicated chapters to care and treatment of children and older people with diabetes.
