Both IDF registered members have the strong international conference experiences in past decade. Therefore Committee firmly believes this grand Congress will be a wonderful and fruitful experience to every participant. We hope to enhance the quality of diabetes health care in the world through different activities and experience sharing during the congress.
In the Western Pacific region, the most populous area in the world, it is estimated that there are now about 138 million people have diabetes according to 2014 IDF Diabetes Atlas. To provide a comprehensive care and prevent the rising epidemic of diabetes in this area, the main theme of the 11th IDF-WPR Congress and 8th AASD Scientific Meeting is set as "Create a new dimension in diabetes: Prevention, Protection and Care". This congress will include Plenary Lectures to highlight the major developments in diabetes in recent years and over 30 symposia to cover major fields for diabetes care, including early screening and prevention of diabetes, diabetes medical therapy, modern technology, complication management, diabetes performance measures, diabetes psychosocial status, diabetes education, obesity/diabetes & bariatric surgery, and train the trainer program. In addition, this meeting will also have oral and poster presentations, meet the specialist and the debate session, etc. It is hoped that by those programs the congress can serve as a platform for every participant and provide an exchange between individuals and institutions to discuss the current status of diabetes research in the challenging areas.
