since 1984. Today, with more than 300 employees working across the
country, our vision is to defeat diabetes by finding better methods of
diabetes prevention, detection and treatment. The need has never been
More than 11 million Canadians are living with diabetes or
prediabetes. Every hour of every day, 20 people are diagnosed with
diabetes. The burden of the disease, both to the individual and the
healthcare system, is growing. By 2020, 10% of Canadians will be
living with diabetes, and the burden of the disease will cost the
healthcare system close to $17 billion annually.
Through our Changing Diabetes® ambition, Novo Nordisk is
making a difference in the lives of people living with diabetes in
Canada. Through partnerships with healthcare providers and
not-for-profit organizations, we help drive research, advocacy and
awareness initiatives to improve access to diabetes education, care
and treatment for all Canadians impacted by the disease.
