Enough is enough! – CEO of International Diabetes Federation about the UN Summit on NCDs


We asked Ann:
1) Can you tell us what does the upcoming summit mean? What does it imply for the regular folks on the street, living with NCDs or at risk of developing an NCD?

2) Why would the US, Canada and EU have an interest in blocking proposals for the inclusion of an overarching goal: to cut preventable deaths from NCDs by 25% by 2025? Why would they benefit at all from doing this?

3) If time-bound commitments and targets end up deleted, diluted and/or downgraded from the Declaration resulting from the summit, is there anything that would have been accomplished?

4) What can we, as people touched by diabetes do to help get our national governments act on our best interest leading up to the summit?
