WDF’s first new partnerships of 2021 are a wide-ranging and ambitious group. Two address the urgent global issues of COVID-19 and humanitarian crises. Some, such as the project in Lesotho, mark the Foundation’s first partnership in the country , while others, such as the Phase II project in Palestine, build on long-term relationships and learnings.
Still other projects, in Canada and India, represent innovative new approaches to diabetes prevention and financing for diabetes care.
Seen together 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.
