Diabetes Programme

Consultation process with stakeholders

Diabetes Action Now draws on the experience and expertise of a network of groups and individuals worldwide. Two formal consultations have taken place: the first to develop the workplan for Diabetes Action Now (November 2003 to February 2004) and the second to consider a specific activity to improve health care for people with diabetes (December 2004 to February 2005).

Providing Guidance on Health Care for People with Diabetes

One of the planned activities for Diabetes Action Now is the provision of guidance on the contents and implementation of national diabetes programmes. As a first step, a consultation process was initiated to seek the views of a broad spectrum of people, including partners at WHO regional offices and IDF and individuals with direct experience of providing diabetes care, concerning the work proposed to assist in strengthening health care for people with diabetes in developing countries.
