about us

Our aim is to alleviate human suffering related to diabetes and its complications among those least able to withstand the burden of the disease. From 2002 to March 2017, the World Diabetes Foundation provided USD 130 million in funding to 511 projects in 115 countries.
For every dollar spent, the Foundation raises approximately 2 dollars in cash or as in-kind donations from other sources.
The total value of the WDF project portfolio reached USD 377 million, excluding WDF’s own advocacy and strategic platforms.
The WDF mission:

  • We create partnerships to assist people with diabetes and those at risk, acting as a catalyst to help others do more.
  • We link people and resources to educate and advocate globally and provide care locally.
  • Our priority is to support the poorest of the poor
  • We aim to empower local communities to achieve sustainable solutions and yield replicable models.
  • We encourage innovative strategies to prevent diabetes and its consequences.
