About DAWN Youth

DAWN Youth is an integral part of Novo Nordisk’s Changing Diabetes programme and a global initiative developed in partnership with the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), the International Society for Paediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD) and leading experts in childhood diabetes. DAWN Youth builds upon the global IDF Youth Charter 2007 as well as on the original DAWN Study from 2001.

The DAWN™ Youth survey revealed how a chronic disease affects children and young people with diabetes and provided a better understanding of the attitudes, wishes and needs of children and young people with or at risk of diabetes, and their families.

Going forward DAWN Youth aims to facilitate action, advocacy and research to improve the lives of young people with diabetes and their families with special focus on overcoming psychosocial barriers and the DAWN Youth Call to Action.
