Insulin Access for Africa: Cape Town Declaration of Action 2016

  • Editorial Office Medpharm Publications

Abstract

People with diabetes are dying in Africa because they cannot afford or access insulin. This is despite nearly 100 years having passed since the discovery of insulin by University of Toronto researchers, who all wished for universal access.1 Most Africans also do not have the medical supplies, education and monitoring needed to use this life saving medication.
