By participating in this fundraising effort, you are directly contributing to the BETTER project, an initiative that is working to enhance the lives of people living with type 1 diabetes and their loved ones in Canada.
This condition affects millions of people worldwide, including over 285,000 Canadians. Despite significant progress in its understanding and management over the years, living with type 1 diabetes remains a burden for those affected and their families.
The BETTER project MISSION:
Led by individuals living with type 1 diabetes, parents of children with type 1 diabetes, researchers, healthcare professionals, and policymakers, this project aims to support and improve the quality of life for people affected by type 1 diabetes in Canada.
It is built upon three pillars:
- RESEARCH AND KNOWLEDGE : Through the BETTER registry, anyone living with this condition, or parents of a child with it, can share their life experiences through online questionnaires. The data collected sheds light on various aspects of life with type 1 diabetes, including those that are often overlooked, such as the impact on mental health. This information is used to develop strategies to alleviate this burden.
- ACCESS TO TRAINING AND INFORMATION : We develop and assess the impact of online training platforms for individuals living with the condition and healthcare professionals. We also publish online resources to support and promote knowledge about type 1 diabetes.
- ADVOCACY AND AWARENESS : Together, we mobilize to educate the general public, policymakers, and healthcare organizations about the daily challenges and unique needs of people living with type 1 diabetes. We work to create an environment that promotes access to care, treatment, and appropriate support.
YOUR GENEROSITY CAN REALLY CHANGE LIVES. Every donation, regardless of the amount*, directly contributes to the fulfillment of our mission and the positive impact we can create. Together, we can make a significant difference and offer a more peaceful future to those in need.
