Mutual Aid Diabetes (MAD) is a mutual aid network created by and for the diabetes community in response to the insulin crisis in the United States. Our mission is to ensure every member of our community has access to insulin, resources, and current legislation. Our work ranges from assisting with financial barriers, assistance with navigating patient assistance programs, advocating for effective insulin access legislation, and offering relevant and up-to-date news and resources. Our resources and information are available to everyone within the diabetes community regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, citizenship status, disability, racial, ethnic, or socio-economic background and we support all types of diabetes and insulin dependency. Although the insulin crisis is prevalent in the United States, MAD strives to support the global diabetes community and to serve as a point of connection for people with diabetes around the world. We are and always will be 100% community-funded and will never accept pharmaceutical or insulin manufacturer funding. We will always actively work against the monetization of the diabetic community that constantly puts profits over patients. Our commitment to the diabetes community allows MAD to be a reliable and unbiased source of resources, information, and support for the diabetes community.
