We are fighting a silent epidemic

7.1% or 33 million adults living in Africa have diabetes.*
* But the true number of adults affected could be as many as 100 million, as many remain undiagnosed.

Eradicating diabetes and its related diseases in people of African origin is possible.

Together, we can do it.

Supporting patients and professionals


Bringing together innovators from around the world to identify breakthrough medicine and technology that can accelerate progress.


Identifying the right policies and incentives to help transform care for diabetes and related non-communicable diseases.

Access to medicines

Identifying obstacles to access innovative medicines and developing plans with providers, prescribers, distributors and policy-makers.
