Here you will find the global, regional and national estimates for insulin use in those living with type 2 diabetes. We believe that these estimates can help to inform policy-makers and advocates alike. If you have any questions or comments regarding the materials please contact us.
Globally, it is estimated that 63.3 million people living with type 2 diabetes require insulin to best manage their condition. However, currently only 30.2 million of these people have access to the insulin they need. This number is only set to increase by 2030, when it is estimated that 79 million people will require insulin. To read more about the global estimates, please see the menu to the right.
