World Diabetes Foundation

The World Diabetes Foundation (WDF) was founded by Novo Nordisk A/S in 2002 as an independent and non-profit foundation. Now 15 years later, the WDF is still one of the few funding mechanisms dedicated specifically to preventing and treating diabetes in developing countries.

It is the WDF’s mission to empower governments, civil society and other non-state actors who strive to deliver on global commitments through national and local action.
