Inception phase of establishing a global platform on diabetes in humanitarian settings, WDF18-1581

WDF18-1581
The proposed initiative is a global advocacy and communication campaign that will benefit refugees among the poorest and most vulnerable populations living under very difficult economic and social conditions

Objective

i) To raise awareness of the challenges and impact of diabetes prevention, care and management in humanitarian settings among key decision-makers, governments, policy-makers, international agencies and non-state actors

ii) To catalyse new pathways for commitment, financing streams and action for improved health services and access to education, care and medicines during initial humanitarian responses to a crisis as well as in protracted phase

Approach

Establish a Steering Committee to frame key messages, identifiy appropriate and effective communication channels as well as key champions and ambassadors. The SC will also provide a pool of experts / key speakers across regions and countries.

Review / gather available relevant statistics and data, which will support the advocacy and communications documents incl. (but not limited to) a website including all relevant statistics and resources linked to refugees and diabetes, briefing notes, leaflets, and other communications and advocacy collateral such as videos and other testimonies from refugees living with, or affected by diabetes. Supplemented by the set-up of appropriate social media channels and a KOL blog

Promote the material via key stakeholders, identified champions, social and traditional media as well as participate in key global events.

Expected results

  • Establish a broader stakeholder coalition (beyond the existing SC members), able to take the platform to the next level.
  • Launch a civil society movement on NCDs within humanitarian settings.
  • Develop sub-messages of the platform with a focus on women and children (potential link to Women Deliver and liaison with UNICEF).
  • Create strong links to the UN Global Compact on Refugees process (2018), WHO Global Dialogue on Financing (PPH II / sponsored by WDF) and the UN High Level Meeting (Sept 2018).
