In the first half of 2022, WDF supported projects focused on helping young people with Type 1 diabetes, preventing populations from developing Type 2 diabetes, and advancing NCD prevention and care at the national level of government. All are based in Africa except for one, a digital health project benefitting youth with Type 1, which is based in Pakistan.

The projects reflect WDF’s new strategy, with its increased focus on diabetes care at the primary level and primary prevention targeting pregnant women and children. They also reflect the Foundation’s transition toward fewer but larger scale projects.
