On the eve of World Diabetes Day (14 November), the World Health Organization is launching a new initiative aiming to expand access to affordable insulin to treat people with diabetes.

More than 420 million people worldwide, mostly in low- and middle-income countries, live with diabetes. Many require insulin but do not have access, often due to high costs.
