Take Action for 100 Years: From Gift to Greed

#insulin100 #AdvocateDontCelebrate

This year marks the 100 year anniversary of the discovery of insulin. T1International is not celebrating this centenary because millions of people worldwide cannot access or afford it. Insulin was meant to be a gift to the world but has become a posterchild of pharmaceutical industry greed. We share some ways you can Advocate, Don't Celebrate below.

Educate Your Community
  • Provide education to your community about the history of insulin, the 100 Year Anniversary of it’s discovery, highlight exorbitant costs, pharmaceutical industry greed, and their dangerous tactics to keep prices high
  • Encourage participation in T1International’s Chapters and Global Advocacy Network, including taking part in campaign actions to call for lower insulin prices
  • Share stories of advocates from around the world who face obstacles with the cost of insulin and how it impacts them, as well as their own advocacy efforts to make sustainable change in their communities
Share Our Press Release

T1International launched the campaign on May 17. A press release will was sent to media contacts and published on our website. Please share it!

Host A Video Watch Party

T1International is working with Miss Diabetes to create an animation video for the campaign, which will be released on July 27th (100 years after insulin was first successfully isolated). We are encouraging viewing parties on or after that date to educate family, friends and co-workers about the reality of pharma’s greed. Prepare for your Watch Party using this document. The video is here.

Don't forget to take a screenshot, share it on social media, tag @t1international, and use the campaign hashtags (#AdvocateDontCelebrate, #FromGiftToGreed, #insulin100, #insulin4all)–and let us know how it went!
