Diabetes and Climate Change

International Diabetes Federation: 6/27/12.
Diabetes and climate change are two urgent challenges in the 21st century. IDF has produced a pioneering policy report that establishes both the interconnections between these global risks and the opportunity to combat them together.

The report was produced in consultation with global experts from the health and environment sectors, including Dr Fiona Adshead, Sir George Alleyne, Associate Professor Ruth Colagiuri, Professor Sir Michael Marmot, Professor Anthony J McMichael and Professor Hugh Montgomery.
