JDRF Australia (South Australia)
JDRF is the leading global organisation funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF Australia is built on a grassroots mode of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on an international stage to pool resources, passion and energy.
Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong autoimmune disease that destroys the ability to produce insulin, a hormone vital for life. People with type 1 diabetes need daily multiple insulin injections or continuous infusion from an insulin pump to stay alive. However insulin is not a cure.
JDRF’s mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat type 1 diabetes and its complications.
There is currently no way to prevent or cure type 1 diabetes.
