Welcome to PDGN

Welcome to the world's first global network of politicians who champion diabetes prevention, early diagnosis and the best treatments for all. PDGN is here to help you become a champion advocate for diabetes and its comorbidities wherever you live.

Our History

The idea of a global network of Parliamentarians championing diabetes within their legislatures came about as a consequence of separate developments over a number of years that highlighted the lack of such an organisation.

A Message from the President

Susan Jackson

It is an honour and a privilege to serve as the President of PDGN and to be part of such an innovative, inspiring and important movement of elected representatives.We may have diverse political viewpoints, come from different countries and cultural backgrounds, but we are united in our advocacy to diagnose and treat diabetes and its comorbidities.

The organisation has grown from the seed of a shared idea into a trans-national group of politicians from every corner of the globe whose power and influence is enhanced through networking information, initiatives and meetings.

I am very proud to have been asked to oversee the next stage in the development of PDGN. The organisation continues to effectively influence Governments and key decision makers through its members, in regional, national and trans-national Parliaments. The next stage is to reach out to more countries and encourage greater cross-party working to ensure diabetes and its comorbidities is taken more seriously through the setting of targets and other mechanisms that drive improvements.

Our mission also aims to get Governments to observe and meet the targets and promises agreed to under international agreements that impact on diabetes, such as the health targets in the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the WHO Diabetes Compact. 

If you are a regional, national or transnational elected representative and you share PDGN’s passion to prevent diabetes and improve the lives of those with the condition, irrespective of where they live, we are here to assist you.  

You can sign up for free by just filling in the online membership form and I look forward to hearing about your ideas and actions.

Best wishes,

Susan Jackson MP

Parliament of Bermuda
