Our Focus

The initiative will target adults living with type 2 diabetes – both diagnosed and undiagnosed – who are disproportionately affected by type 2 diabetes. There are three focal points for funding and partnership:

  • Help adults living with type 2 diabetes to better self-manage their disease and navigate care with sustained and relevant support for the course of their disease journey
  • Help communities to build, integrate and coordinate medical, non-medical and policy efforts, and expand the base of community organizations actively involved in and bringing their know-how, reach, influence and assets to the fight against type 2 diabetes
  • Foster a radical rethink and test new ideas about how diabetes control efforts are approached, designed, implemented and measured given the current and future scale of the epidemic and the long duration of the disease journey
