Strong commitment to high standard education
IDF has always placed particular emphasis on developing accessible, evidence-based educational resources for healthcare professionals, people living with diabetes and caregivers. In 2016, under the Presidency of the late Dr Shaukat Sadikot, the IDF School of Diabetes was developed with the clear objective of enabling professionals from across the world to enhance their skills and provide better diabetes care.
Education without barriers
IDF School of Diabetes’ unique structure, with a mix of free and paid access courses, means there are no barriers to participation, bringing training across all regions, and more importantly, making high standard, evidence-based education accessible in low and middle-income countries and remote and rural areas.
The IDF School of Diabetes is committed to supporting national efforts to build healthcare workforce capacity by collaborating with national health authorities in the development of courses for healthcare professionals. In 2019, the first collaboration took place in Kenya and involved 2000 medical and clinical officers.
