The 2nd Annual Symposium on Diabetes in Humanitarian Crises

3 min read

In December 2020 we hosted the 2nd Annual Symposium on Diabetes in Humanitarian Crises virtually to review the progress that has been made since the inaugural symposium in April 2019, the major global events of the past year that have impacted the humanitarian health agenda, discuss innovative ideas to improve the delivery of diabetes care in humanitarian settings, and plan the agenda for 2021.

The symposium featured 5 panel discussions, an abstract session and small group breakout discussions with 44 speakers across 18 countries in 5 global regions. Speakers included experts from the International Rescue Committee, Doctors Without Borders, Life for a Child, UNHCR, Clinton Health Access Initiative, International Diabetes Federation and World Health Organization, among others.
