ESWI networks & communities

Influenza Diabetes Community

The Influenza Diabetes Community (IDC) unites scientists, healthcare professionals, patient -and other stakeholder organisations to discuss, share best practices and to network with the objective to raise awareness of the burden of influenza, Covid-19 and RSV in people living with diabetes.
