Annual Report showcases 2010 achievements

The International Diabetes Federation's Life for a Child Programme has published its Annual Report 2010, showcasing the many highlights of a successful year. Key achievements included eight new countries joining the programme, bringing the total to 28, and a twofold increase in the number of children supported, with an additional 3,500 young people receiving insulin through Life for a Child.

"The task remains immense with an estimated 100,000 young people with diabetes in need of essential care around the world. As it grows from strength to strength, the Life for a Child Programme is increasingly well-positioned to meet this need and achieve its vision of no child dying of diabetes."
