Chronic diseases, including diabetes, pose major challenges for populations, healthcare, and economies globally. Therefore, it is necessary for the global healthcare systems to work towards a cross-sectoral oriented collaboration that provides more healthy life years for citizens with chronic diseases, a high user satisfaction in the treatment and new forms of treatment that are structurally and economically sustainable.
Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen is a Global Innovation Hub as it is one of the world's most advanced and innovative initiatives which helps strengthen the development towards a more coherent and efficient healthcare system that creates value for people living with diabetes.
Some of the remarkable results that the public-private cooperation has achieved include that almost no one goes blind as a result of diabetes as well as an 80 percent reduction in diabetes-related leg amputations. The vision is to offer people living with diabetes both prevention and treatment at an international top-level.
