National 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 a national level…

We collaborate with local stakeholders to generate research and other advocacy tools that help advance the case for universal access to insulin and other aspects of diabetes care with their governments.
