Changing Diabetes® Leadership Forums

On 20 December 2006 the United Nations’ (UN) adopted a resolution on diabetes [No 61/225] to call upon all nations to take appropriate action. The global Changing Diabetes® Leadership Forums are Novo Nordisk’s commitment to facilitate a worldwide response to the escalating diabetes pandemic.

From March 2007 to December 2016, Leadership Forums took place in more than 35 countries worldwide, with international Forums in New York, Moscow, Beijing, Johannesburg, Dubai, Copenhagen, Istanbul, Mexico City and Brussels.

The Forums gather policy makers, government officials, international organisations, patient organisations, healthcare professionals, people with diabetes, NGOs and the media to discuss solutions to the burden of diabetes.

The Forums work to drive change and move diabetes up the public health agenda. At the same time they encourage commitment to national targets for improved diabetes prevention, early detection and care.

The Changing Diabetes® Leadership Forums are driven by the Novo Nordisk regions and affiliates and take place locally. Novo Nordisk is a partner, facilitator and knowledge resource at these Forums.
