Blueprint – Action on Diabetes

‘What is Diabetes?’ Fact sheet

IDF Atlas – Europe

Blueprint for Action on Diabetes in the European Union by 2030

The Blueprint is the cornerstone of the activities of MEPs Mobilising for Diabetes and is also a critical tool for everyone, at national and European level, who is committed to improving the policy response to the growing burden of diabetes in Europe.

The document is written from the perspective of people living with diabetes (PwD) in Europe and contains recommendations of actions to be implemented to improve their quality of life. These recommendations are articulated around three key pillars: risk reduction, integrating care and enabling access. The action plan is supported by three cross-cutting ‘enablers’: engagement of PwD, digital transformation of healthcare and investment in research.
