Type 1 diabetes is one of the fastest-growing chronic health conditions, impacting nearly nine million people across the globe. The new T1D Index measures the human and public health impact of type 1 diabetes in every country. We are delighted to have contributed to its development and will support its promotion and further development to make the case for uninterrupted access to affordable insulin, technologies and education for all people living with type 1 diabetes.
Understanding diabetes is the first step to managing and preventing the condition. A new online education platform is now available in the IDF School of Diabetes to help people with diabetes and those who care for them to make informed decisions about their condition.
IDF is deeply concerned by the crisis in Ukraine and is closely monitoring the situation to ensure that emergency relief is provided to people living with diabetes in the country and refugees in neighbouring countries. IDF Member Direct Relief has mobilised its resources to support medical needs as they become known.
