Dear colleagues and friends,
It gives us great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 13th IDF-WPR Congress and 12th AASD Scientific Meeting, to be held virtually from 16th to 18th July 2021.
This is the second time that the Chinese Diabetes Society (CDS) has been given the honor to host these two prestigious events since the 5th IDF-WPR Congress in 2002 and the 3rd AASD Scientifi¬c Meeting in 2011 in Beijing. Through the years, the IDF-WPR congress has become the most important regional platform for the exchanges of the latest information and knowledge on diabetes prevention and care. Despite the impact of COVID-19 pandemic, we will do our utmost to provide an excellent opportunity for leading professionals, practitioners, researchers and experts to share knowledge and exchange on issues about prevention, management and control of diabetes.
The 13th International Diabetes Federation Western Pacific Region Congress （IDF-WPR 2021）, concurrently happening with the 12th Scientific Meeting of Asian Association for the Study of Diabetes (AASD 2021), is to be held in National Convention and Exhibition Center (Shanghai) from 16-18 July 2021.
The congress is jointly organized by the Chinese Diabetes Sociey and Chinese Medical Association, and supported by a number of local academic organizations as well as local authorities. The congress highlights the theme “New era for diabetes care: innovation, translation and integration”, focusing on the latest advances in the prevention and treatment of diabetes and its complications.
