New Chief Executive Officer Joins International Diabetes Federation
Date:11/2/2008

BRUSSELS, November 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) announced today that Ms Ann Keeling has joined the organization as Chief Executive Officer/Executive Director.

The International Diabetes Federation, headquartered in Brussels, Belgium, is an umbrella organization of over 200 diabetes associations worldwide. It is the global advocate for the more than 250 million people with diabetes, their families, and healthcare providers.

Ms Keeling takes the helm of the Federation at a time when the diabetes pandemic is growing fast and placing unrelenting strain on global healthcare resources. She will help steer the response of the Federation as it broadens its efforts to increase awareness and encourage action. IDF leads the World Diabetes Day (14 November) campaign and the Unite for Diabetes campaign, which resulted in a UN Resolution on diabetes. The organization will hold its flagship World Diabetes Congress in Montreal, Canada next year.

For over 50 years, the Federation has been at the vanguard of global diabetes advocacy. It is an NGO in official relations with the World Health Organization and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), and an associated NGO with the United Nations Department of Public Information. IDF is committed to raising global awareness of diabetes, promoting appropriate diabetes care and prevention, and encouraging activities towards finding a cure.

"Diabetes is often thought to be a disease of the rich. Yet the world is in the grip of a global diabetes epidemic that affects rich and poor countries alike. In many countries, diabetes threatens to overwhelm health systems. I want the International Diabetes Federation to be the place for people everywhere to learn more about diabetes. A place to join the global diabetes community and help turn back the tide of this disease. The landmark UN Resolution on diabetes gives us our mandate," said Ms Keeling.
