Most people in most countries of the world who need life-saving insulin cannot obtain it.
Insulin for Life (IFL) was established in 1999. It evolved from the 20-year program at the International Diabetes Institute, Australia.
Insulin for Life Australia (IFLA) www.insulinforlife.org.au collects donated, in date (with at least 6 months to use by date) insulin and blood glucose test strips that would otherwise be wasted These are then donated to recognised organisations overseas, with agreed monitoring systems, on an ongoing, sustainable basis, and following emergencies. Recipient organisations include diabetes clinics, children’s diabetes camps and Diabetes Associations and programs involving Australian medical students.
For more information please see IFLA www.insulinforlife.org.au and our Facebook Page.
Insulin for Life Global IFLG www.insulinforlife.org was formed in 2017, and coordinates the activities of the Insulin for Life organisations that exist in several countries.
This is an innovative, cost-effective and life-saving humanitarian assistance program... one model "right for the 21st century".
