Around the globe today, people with type 1 diabetes are dying because they cannot afford or get a hold of insulin, supplies, education and treatment.

To survive and live a full life, everyone with type 1 diabetes has the right to the following:

1. The right to insulin 

Everyone should have enough affordable insulin and syringes.

2. The right to manage your blood sugar 

Everyone should be able to test their blood sugar levels regularly.

3. The right to diabetes education

Everyone should be able to understand their condition, including adjusting insulin dosages and diet.

4. The right to healthcare 

Everyone should have hospital care in the case of emergencies and ongoing specialist care from a professional who understands type 1 diabetes.

5. The right to live a life free from discrimination

No one should be subject to any form of discrimination or prejudice because they have type 1 diabetes.
