Video: Spotlight on the AstraZeneca Young Health Program

One-third of children and adolescents in Mexico are overweight or obese — a condition that puts their health at serious risk. Through the AstraZeneca Young Health Program, young people like Reyna are learning to take control of their health and break the cycle.

In Mexico, 16-year-old Reyna watched her grandmother struggle with type 1 diabetes her whole life. That motivated her to join the AstraZeneca Young Health Program, which is helping young people in Mexico make healthier choices and reduce the risk behaviors that can lead to type 2 diabetes and other diseases.

Diabetes is an urgent global health crisis that affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide. More than 1.5 million people die from diabetes every year, the majority in low- and middle-income countries where essential medicines like insulin may be completely out of reach.

Everyone deserves access to the care and support they need to live a full, healthy life, and access to diabetes care must be made available to everyone, everywhere.

This World Diabetes Day, we stand with the World Diabetes Federation to say that access to diabetes care must be made available to everyone, everywhere.
