Supporting health

Sun Life and Diabetes

In 2012, we announced our commitment to diabetes. Diabetes has become a global epidemic and affects approximately 537 million people worldwide, over 90% of whom are living with type-2 diabetes1.
Sun Life aims to slow the advance of type-2 diabetes and its related complications by boosting the health and wellness of our Clients, Employees and the community. We’ve focused our corporate philanthropic giving on the prevention of type-2 diabetes.
