WDF funds 13 new projects in second half of 2018

The newest projects span the globe, but share a common theme – to prevent diabetes, and improve the health of those who develop it.
Potential beneficiaries of WDF18-1579, a new project combatting NCDs among Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, with a focus on women’s health.
Projects funded by WDF in the second half of 2018 stretch from Argentina to Zimbabwe, and focus on a variety of interventions and focus areas. But they share a goal of diabetes prevention and – as neatly summarised by the new Niger project - to improve the health of people with diabetes.
 
Below is a list of the 13 new partnership projects that received WDF funding in the second six months of 2018.
