4th to 8th December 2017, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The global diabetes community will again unite at the IDF (International Diabetes Federation) 2017 Congress in Abu Dhabi, on 4-8 December 2017. The event will include more than 200 speakers, both world-renowned and newcomers, 230 national diabetes associations from 170 countries and high level participation from the Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD) and other health organisations.

The scientific programme provides the latest developments in diabetes clinical practice, management, education, prevalence and public health issues. The broad nature of the programme is invaluable for all professionals in the field of diabetes, from clinicians and physicians to educators, public health specialist, epidemiologists, as well as policy makers and advocates.

With over 160 hours of sessions, 300 top-level speakers, 1000 posters and an estimated 21 CME credits, the programme aims to provide the delegate with an invaluable learning experience through varied and innovative sessions.

With such a charged programme, it is very important to rest your mind and unwind. For the first time IDF will be running lunch-time exercise classes. Participate in relaxing classes of Yoga or Tai Chi to refresh yourself for the afternoon. Stretch your body, boost your metabolism and refocus your mind so that you are able to take advantage of everything IDF 2017 has to offer!


“With the significance of non-communicable diseases in our society, we consider diabetes a top priority. HAAD anticipates a growth in demand for general medical services linked to lifestyle-related diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, with larger volume increases in outpatient and inpatient settings. Therefore, it is important for the medical community to convene to discuss trends, optimal treatment standards and realistic means of prevention and mitigation of complications.” (Professor Dr. Maha Taysir Barakat, Director General of HAAD)
