Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong condition requiring daily insulin injections, blood glucose monitoring, education and specialist healthcare. Access to this life-saving treatment is often difficult, and sometimes impossible, to achieve in less-resourced countries. Without support, many young people die soon after being diagnosed. Those who survive develop complications, such as eye damage and kidney failure.

Charting impact

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

We believe: No child should die of diabetes and work towards this vision by supporting the provision of the best possible healthcare, given local circumstances, to all children and youth (under 26 years of age) with diabetes in less-resourced countries, through the strengthening of existing diabetes services.

We partner with diabetes centers in under-resourced countries to provide young people with:
- Insulin and syringes
- Blood glucose monitoring equipment and test strips
- Clinical care
- HbA1c testing
- Diabetes education, workshops, camps, resources
- Support for health professionals

We also conduct international advocacy and clinical research, and where possible help both young adults and also recipient countries with achieving sustainability.

A memorandum of understanding is signed by each recipient of supplies with a requirement for rigorous clinical and financial feedback. This includes annually (patient lists, narrative reports, annual clinical data sheet (for as many patients as possible), and financial reports, if funds have been provided) and quarterly stock reports. An annual review is then conducted before support is continued and overall support is reconsidered every three years. Site visits are also conducted by staff and representatives of Life for a Child.

A wide network of local partners in combined with the support of a number of corporate partners providing in-kind insulin and supplies.

Life for a Child currently supports the care of over 19,000 young people across 42 countries. Many of these young people would have nowhere else to turn for insulin and supplies. Research papers have been published in leading journals and are being used for advocacy efforts in supported countries and beyond.
