Community advocacy

Everything we do is grounded in the belief that diabetes care is an inherent human right - and this is what we advocate for.

At a community level…

We run workshops to link grassroots campaigners and local organizations to leading experts. We often welcome high-profile speakers, for example, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health was a keynote speaker for our session on teaching advocates how to integrate rights-based approaches into their own initiatives.
