World Diabetes Congress Melbourne 2013: the lasting legacy The legacy of the event will be felt for years to come. The World Diabetes Congress attracted over 10,300 delegates from 140 countries making it officially the largest medical Congress ever held in Australia. The scientific programme consisted of 7 streams, a total of 332 hours of concurrently running sessions. 405 speakers from 51 countries presented at the Congress and a record number of 2,208 abstracts were submitted for peer-review. New initiatives include the launch of an IDF partnership with The Fred Hollows Foundation on diabetic retinopathy and the creation of the first ever network of Parliamentary Champions for Diabetes. The Melbourne Congress also promoted a message of healthy living to delegates. Daily morning runs were organised and healthy food was served throughout the venue. Adding to the message of healthy living, international sporting celebrities, Olympian Cathy Freeman from Australia and Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram, both spoke at the Congress on living life to the full with diabetes. We look forward to welcoming you to the World Diabetes Congress in 2015 to build on these successes!
