The T1D Community Fund
Working to improve the lives of people living with type 1 diabetes in low- and middle-income countries.

Type 1 diabetes is a complex chronic disease

that is challenging to manage in any setting. In LMICs, these challenges are often made even more difficult, when low-resourced health systems are not able to provide the access to comprehensive care that patients need.

Crucial gaps in health services — from appropriate diagnostics and sufficient medicine to medical specialists and reliable supply chains — mean that type 1 diabetes can be a fatal diagnosis for many in these communities.

Through funding opportunities, The T1D Community Fund seeks to advance:

  • The impact of community-based organizations working to improve the lives of people living with type 1 diabetes
  • Opportunities for collaboration between community-based organizations
  • Learning on needs, challenges, and opportunities to better support the type 1 diabetes community in the future

Stay tuned for grant announcements and future funding opportunities by signing up for our mailing list, below.
