Team Type 1 FIGHT’S for the RIGHT to LIVE through a global mission of education, empowerment and equal access to medicine, tools and education for everyone affected by diabetes.

Team Type 1 foundation (TT1) exists because everyone with diabetes deserves the right to lead a healthy and productive life. In developing countries that means changing health care policies in order to save lives. TT1 entered in a bilateral collaboration through partnership with the Rwanda Government since we believe that a sustainable change in the health sector is possible only if the government is involved.

Statistics and information for Sub-Saharan Africa:
- In Africa 7 out of 8 children die before being diagnosed
- In Sub-Saharan Africa children with type 1 diabetes have high mortality rates with life expectancy of 7 – 11 months after diagnosis
- This early mortality justifies low prevalence of type 1 diabetes in the region
- Sub-Saharan African Region has the highest proportion of undiagnosed diabetes
- 344,000 deaths in the region can be attributed to diabetes
