Why We Donate
Diabetes health care needs to change, and while we can't change the science ourselves, we can donate to the cause. Every year DKIT makes a donation to Diabetes Canada.
Every 24 hours in Canada
480 Canadians are diagnosed and more than 20 people die of diabetes-related complications.
At DKIT we believe access to insulin is a human right.
The cost of living with Diabetes continues to increase, with the main cause being the cost of Insulin. There are currently three Insulin producers that control over 90% of the market - Eli Lilly, Novo Nordisk, and Sanofi. The commodification of Diabetics by these companies is unfair - and leaves those managing their daily Diabetic stressors to be stuck with the bill.
