The growing recognition of the threat that diabetes poses to
individuals and societies is encouraging. But we need to see
improvement on more fronts – governments, civil society and other
non-state actors need to be proactive if they are to deliver on global
commitments to reduce premature mortality from NCDs.
Over the past 17 years, we have seen the size, ambition and impact
of our projects grow. In addition, our long-term funding mechanism and
partner network mean that WDF is well-positioned to help countries
achieve global targets such as the UN Sustainable
Development Goals. The role of the World Diabetes
Foundation as a demand-driven funder, catalyst and technical partner
for sustainable development is more relevant than ever – and we look
forward to lending our support to this critical task.
