What we do

What we do
Diabetes  is among the greatest public health emergencies of the 21st century, and it's hitting developing countries the hardest 

Nearly 80% of people with diabetes live in low- and middle-income countries, where financial and human resources are often scarce. Marginalised, vulnerable and underserved populations in developing countries continue to be impacted disproportionately by diabetes and its complications.

WDF's role
It is the WDF’s mission to empower governments, civil society and other non-state actors who strive to deliver on global commitments through national and local action. To achieve this, we create partnerships and act as a catalyst to help others do more. We encourage and fund innovative projects and strategies to prevent and treat diabetes and its complications. 
Our projects are organised by Intervention and Focus Area
Interventions are the objective of the project. Focus Areas are the disease state the project addresses. WDF projects combine one or more Interventions with one or more Focus Areas.
