2021 marks the centenary of the discovery of insulin

In Africa, more than 19 million people are living with diabetes and this number is expected to grow to 47 million by 2025.

About two-thirds of people living with diabetes in African countries are unaware of their condition. 

Premature death among people with diabetes is still high in many African countries, because of late diagnosis and a lack of access to insulin.

In Ghana it would take the average worker more than five days of earnings to save up for a monthly supply of insulin.
