WDF funded a total of 11 new projects in the second half of 2020, many in Africa but also spanning the rest of the world.
Several of the new projects build on previous projects, for example by extending Armenia’s national diabetes strategy and improving access to diabetes care and prevention in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. In Mozambique, a new project aims to ensure that the results obtained during the first phase are not eroded because of the current COVID-19 emergency. Two more projects, in Mongolia and Uganda, are working with different NCD management models.
The remaining projects aim to strengthen civil society, develop a diabetes database system and reduce diabetes-related morbidity and mortality.
