Most people in most countries of the world who need life-saving insulin cannot obtain it.
Insulin for Life Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that collects and distributes insulin and other diabetes supplies that would otherwise be wasted. These are donated to recognised organisations in many countries, with agreed monitoring systems, on an ongoing, sustainable basis, and following emergencies. Recipient organisations include children’s diabetes camps, programs involving Australian medical students, Diabetes Associations and clinics.
In addition to the Insulin for Life (IFL) center in Australia, there are 8 other IFL affiliated centers in Austria, Canada, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, United Kingdom and USA (click here for details). IFL Australia coordinates the collaborative activities of the 9 IFL affiliated centers (known as “IFL Global”), and helps start new ones.
This is an innovative, cost-effective and life-saving humanitarian assistance program... one model "right for the 21st century."
