Collect and redistribute insulin and diabetes supplies

Insulin for Life USA (IFL-USA) is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization whose purpose is to provide, free of cost, medications and disease management supplies to people with diabetes who would otherwise go without these life-saving provisions. In brief, the organization gathers in-date, unopened, and otherwise unneeded supplies from people with diabetes in the USA, their family members, or organizations (e.g., clinics, manufacturers, pharmacies) and, after careful inspection, delivers them to clinics to benefit those in need. IFL-USA is fully licensed by the State of Florida to both receive and distribute medications for this purpose. To be clear, IFL-USA does not offer supplies directly to individuals, but only to medical professionals that have been thoroughly vetted for their professional character and dedication to charity-based care.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Given the need, as an organization, Insulin for Life USA has a number of key goals. First amongst them, our desire is to save lives….as many as possible. It has been estimated that nearly 95,000 children with type 1 diabetes, from some 45 countries, lack in having continued access to insulin. Second, our organization is “green"; meaning, we seek to reduce and eventually eliminate the unnecessary waste of viable insulin and diabetes supplies. For a variety of reasons (e.g., prescription change, pharmaceutical error, death of a family member with diabetes), insulin or other diabetes supplies become available and are normally subject to disposal. Our desire is to turn what would form medical waste into a life saving gift. Third, as a not for profit, we must build sustainability and with this, seek the support (both financial and in-kind donations) from a diverse population of supporters including individuals, pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, and charitable organizations interested in global health care. Finally, we place major emphasis on raising public awareness of the problem as well as increasing governmental health care agency contributions to the care and treatment of those with the disease.

IFL USA solicits donations of diabetes supplies that are in-date, unopened, and suitable for utilization. The items are carefully vetted and inventoried for redistribution. IFL USA partners with licensed healthcare providers worldwide. The supplies are then redistributed to our partner healthcare teams for their needy patients.

IFL USA is a registered business in the State of Florida. IFL USA is an actively approved 501(c)3 organization. IFL USA holds a Florida Drug License, which authorizes it's organizational activities.

IFL USA has made significant progress in distributing diabetes supplies worldwide. We can share the following data to reflect our progress in the calendar year 2022.
