T1D complications – Blindness and Kidney Disease in Europe

People with T1D must have access to groundbreaking innovations to benefit from them. JDRF encourages health-plan policies to cover prescribed T1D therapies at affordable costs and advocates for national policies that protect those with chronic diseases. Work to improve healthcare access for the T1D community has three main areas of focus – coverage, affordability and choice.
