Discover the living conditions of America and Alexis, two young persons in Mexico affected by Diabetes Type 1. “Living without limits” is the winner of the NCDs FILM PRIZE of the Health for All Film Festival 2020, organized by the World Health Organization. Conversations around tackling diabetes often focus on encouraging patients to get healthy by changing their lifestyle habits. But not all diabetes is preventable – Type 1 is an autoimmune disease with no cure. Helmsley Charitable Trust initiatives are helping children in Mexico living with the condition, by providing access to diagnosis and treatment for all, the film was made by BBC StoryWorks for this NGO.
