International advocacy

Everything we do is grounded in the belief that diabetes care is an inherent human right - and this is what we advocate for.

At an international level…

We collaborate with organizations such as the World Health Organization, NCD Alliance, and other transnational health agencies to raise awareness of the particular needs of children and young people with diabetes.
