Overview

In 2015, the International Diabetes Federation brings the World Diabetes Congress to Vancouver, Canada.

Experts in diabetes care from around the world will exchange diabetes research and best practices. Physicians, scientists, nurses, educators and other healthcare professionals, as well as government officials, policy makers and representatives from 230 IDF Member Associations will gather to learn, discover and connect.

The cutting-edge scientific programme will be made up of 220 hours of sessions split into 6 streams. With talks from around 350 speakers and over 1000 posters being presented, the World Diabetes Congress is a great learning experience. Up to 80 global exhibitors will be presenting their latest research, products and medical advances. This event is the ideal place to connect and network with all the players in the field of diabetes medicine, care, management and advocacy.

As a strategic location, Vancouver bridges the North American and Asia Pacific regions providing an appropriate setting for discussions on how to tackle the global diabetes epidemic. IDF estimates that 10 per cent of Canadians have diabetes. Furthermore, one in five children with type 1 diabetes lives in the North America and Caribbean region.

The WDC 2015 will coincide with the expiration of the current Millennium Development Goals and the adoption of the new Post-2015 Development Framework, a major push for expanded access to diabetes prevention, treatment and a cure.
