Life for a Child has a very active research agenda in aspects of diabetes in young people in under-resourced communities.
This work is generally funded by The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust and covers:
- Incidence, prevalence and mortality
- Types of diabetes occurring
- Access to diabetes care
- Cost of diabetes care
- Impact of interventions
- Care-giving and psychological impacts

Part B – Formal evaluation by London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
In 2014, The Leona M and Harry B Helmsley Charitable Trust commissioned the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to conduct a comprehensive formal evaluation of the work of Life for a Child.
The work was conducted by a team lead by Professor Martin McKee and Dr. Sue Atkinson. Site visits were done in five countries: Rwanda, India, Jamaica, Mexico, and Philippines.
The review covered five themes:
- Life for a Child structure and organization
- Optimal strategic framework for high impact sustainable results
- Changes to polices that could improve quality, quantity, efficiency and effectiveness
- Impacts on countries, systems and children
- Impact on long term sustainability in T1D care delivery systems
The review overall shows that Life for a Child is a strong programme that is delivered well and is highly valued by the countries and the children, young people and their families that are supported by it. It is clear that Life for a Child enables children and young people with type 1 diabetes to survive and, as the programme and country policies strengthen, enables them also to thrive.
Life for a Child already does many things right and the team, albeit small, are extremely dedicated and enthusiastic. Many aspects are to be applauded and continued.
The review identifies Life for a Child’s strengths and challenges. It focuses particularly on the Programme’s engagement in-country and on how Life for a Child develops a strategic direction for care and treatment of type 1 diabetes. It identifies a need for developing country leadership and building local capacity, implementing approaches that catalyze systemic improvements in type 1 diabetes care delivery systems.
The ultimate goal must be for people with type 1 diabetes to be able to get good treatment and care within their country’s health system. Unfortunately, this does not appear to be a realistic goal in the short term in most countries. Nevertheless, there is a need for a higher priority to be given to the medium and long-term sustainability of the support provided for children with type 1 diabetes, making full use of the experiences gathered by Life for a Child and the information that it has collected on burden of disease, health needs, and barriers to be overcome in obtaining effective care by people with type 1 diabetes.
The five themes are explored in depth and recommendations made in relation to each”.
Work is now underway to strengthen sustainability aspects and implement the other recommendations of the report.
