How can I support the 100 Campaign?
The 100 Campaign will link the in-country experience of the International Insulin Foundation (IIF), social and new media, the power of youth with advocacy and the development of new tools, combined with research, to improve the lives of people with Type 1 diabetes and achieve 100% access to insulin. We aim to amplify and share stories of individuals and communities working in the field who have achieved results and progress in terms of access to insulin, empowering and connecting them to others. We aim to provide tools that will lead different communities at the national, regional and global level to change the system for the better. We will have updates here coming soon, so please continue to check back regularly.
Founded in 2012, the 100 Campaign is a global movement committed to tearing down the barriers to access to insulin for all that need it. Disheartened by the lack of global action towards access to insulin, a small team of advocates with experience in diabetes communities in resource poor settings came together to launch the 100 Campaign, with the support of the International Insulin Foundation (IIF).
We are commited to providing resources that move forward the goal of insulin access by 2022. Please contact us if there are specific needs your diabetes community might need.
The 100 Campaign chooses not to receive any funding from the Pharmaceutical industry. Currently the 100 Campaign is not accepting any monetary donations from individuals. Individuals or companies wishing to support the 100 Campaign can do so in-kind. We would also welcome invitation from grant-making organizations. For further information please contact us directly.
