Diabetes Africa is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation established to realise this vision. We operate as a network linking patients, professionals and decision-makers to ensure that we tackle the problem collectively, with practical, effective and creative solutions.
Over the period 2020-2030, our focus is the delivery of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 3: “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all ages”. We want to help reduce premature mortality from non-communicable diseases and ensure access to healthcare services and medicine to all.
We are also committed to realising Goal 17: “Revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development”.
This means mobilising stakeholders from governments, international organisations, agencies, non-profit, business and academic institutions to develop and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources.
