A Rotary Minute: Rotary Action Group for Diabetes


Rotary Action Group for Diabetes (RAGD) aims to address the Global Diabetes Epidemic by raising awareness to the humanitarian eyes, hearts and minds of 1.4 million members of Rotary International and other individuals and organizations who would like to join our efforts. 

Globally, more than 537 million people (20-79) suffer from diabetes while nearly half don’t even know.  That is 1 in 11 persons suffering from diabetes.  6.7 million deaths (2021) were caused by diabetes and high blood glucose.  Diabetes is the leading cause of Kidney Failure, non-trauma Lower Limb Amputations, Loss of Vision among working adults, Increased Risk of Heart Disease and Stroke.

Around the world, millions suffering from diabetes are unable to access life-saving treatment and lack the means to manage their condition. RAGD is organized exclusively for charitable, religious, educational, and scientific purposes, including, for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or the corresponding section of any future federal tax code.RAGD is organized and approved according to Rotary International policy but not an activity or agency of, or controlled by Rotary International.
