Annual Report 2012
2012 saw the IDF Life for a Child Programme reach the significant milestone of supporting over 10,000 children with diabetes in the developing world. The achievement of this target was truly remarkable and testimony to the rapid expansion that has taken place in a short space of time. In 2008, around 1,000 children were being supported by the Programme.
The Life for a Child Annual Report 2012 showcases this achievement and more, demonstrating how the Programme is going from strength to strength and concretely making a difference to the lives of thousands of young people living with diabetes in the developing world.
Over 11,200 children with diabetes in 43 countries are currently supported by Life for a Child.
Annual Report 2011
In 2011, another seven countries joined the IDF Life for a Child Programme with increasing numbers of young people receiving vital insulin, syringes and monitoring supplies. Important progress was also made in developing online educational resources and building the knowledge base that will help strengthen the response to the diabetes epidemic.
The Life for a Child Annual Report 2011 highlights these achievements and the ongoing development of the programme, which is providing a lifeline for children with diabetes in developing countries.
