The increase in rates of diabetes across the globe brings with it an increase in diabetes complications. Poor diabetes management, whether through lack of education, limited access to care or undiagnosed conditions, means diabetes complications are a real problem in most countries.
Following the succesful launch of this new congress series in Hyderabad, India in 2018, IDF invited new and current partners to Lisbon for an update on the latest research, treatments and tools to manage, treat and prevent diabetes complications. This event was focused on improving the outcomes and quality of life for people with diabetes.
The IDF Diabetes Complications Congress 2020 was organised in collaboration with the Portuguese Diabetes Association (APDP).
