Developed by JDRF—the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research—alongside Life for a Child, International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD), International Diabetes Foundation (IDF) and Beyond Type 1, the T1D Index uses global survey data from more than 400 publications and 500 endocrinologists to simulate the prevalence and impact of T1D.
The Index was launched in the medical journal, The Lancet and this article from Beyond Type 1 explains its history, aims and projections. As Beyond Type 1 points out, knowing how many people with T1D might be alive today if they’d had access to care, can support advocacy efforts. Knowing the rate of people with T1D globally has more than tripled in 30 years, is a story we should tell.
You’ll find the Index here.
