About T1International
T1International is a non-profit led by people with and impacted by type 1 diabetes for people with type 1 diabetes. We do not accept funding from the pharmaceutical industry or any medical device manufacturer to maintain our independence and ability to speak out freely.

T1International is leading the charge in the fight for affordable insulin and supplies worldwide. We believe in a world where everyone with type 1 diabetes has the opportunity to thrive, with affordable and sustainable access to the medicine and supplies they need. We are patient led in our work and values, and our team and community reflect a range of allies from caregivers, to parents, to partners, to those committed to health equity work.

T1International was founded in the UK in 2013 and became a registered 501(c)(3) at the end of 2019. Today T1International has six team members in the US and three team members in the UK.
