While we work to find a cure, the Association is leading the fight against diabetes by advocating on behalf of people living with the disease for the opportunity to achieve their highest quality of life.
The Canadian Diabetes Association’s advocacy direction is guided by three central themes:
1. Addressing the burden of diabetes in Canada
2. Improving access to diabetes services, care and support, and
3. Achieving equity for all Canadians living with diabetes
By focusing its approach on building relationships, and supporting these relationships with strong communications and information/educational tools, the Association has already begun to achieve some impact in these areas. Moving forward, while there is much work to be done, with the support of its extraordinary body of grassroots diabetes advocates, there is also much more that can be accomplished.
