GO Communities Showcase


New Era for Communities

DIA is a global member association that provides knowledge resources across the full spectrum of medical product development. In the last few years the organization has expanded that global reach and will continue to grow to meet the need for health care knowledge exchange around the world.

As DIA’s reach expands globally we believe a name change is necessary. Our global volunteers came to consensus on "Community" to replace "SIACs." This change will enhance the visibility of the groups and make it much easier to recognize their purpose.

Each Community is led by a chairperson who is responsible for the overall activities of the Community. View complete list of Community chairpersons.

GO Patient Initiatives

Through DIA’s worldwide conferences and programs, patient representatives have opportunities to develop, strengthen, and support collaborations with policymakers, health professionals, industry representatives, and academia while promoting dialogue and sharing best practices.

The EuroMeeting Patient Fellowship is designed to:

Develop, strengthen, and support patient collaborations with policy makers, health professionals, industry representatives, and academia;

Increase the knowledge and understanding of patient groups about key issues central to patient-centered healthcare, biomedical research, and drug development;

Develop the capacity of patient groups to advocate for change;

Improve alliances between patient groups and other healthcare stakeholders; and

Stimulate cooperation, promote dialogue, and share best practices.
