Vision: A world without type 1 diabetes (T1D)

Mission: Improving lives today and tomorrow by accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.

JDRF is the leading global organization funding T1D research. Our strength lies in our exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D.

In 1974, four years after JDRF was founded in the United States, a group of parents determined to find a cure for their children living with T1D came together and began JDRF Canada, creating what has become the largest national funder and advocate for T1D research.
