Currently there are 11.7 million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes, and in just 10 years, that number is expected to increase to 14 million.
To address this growing health crisis, Diabetes Canada is focused on improving the quality of life for those with diabetes. Two key goals include being the go-to place for information and connection and changing the conversations around diabetes.
- We’re sharing knowledge and creating connections for individuals and healthcare professionals who care for them.
- We’re funding critical research to bring us closer to a cure.
- Our advocacy efforts are improving access to diabetes medications, devices and supplies.
- Through our national, medically supervised D-Camps, we’re connecting kids and youth with type 1 diabetes when they need it most.
- And through ongoing education, including our toll-free support line, we’re helping people with diabetes live better.
With you by our side, we will keep working together to End Diabetes.
