Plan coming to boost production and reduce cost of insulin

The high cost of insulin may end up being a thing of the past for millions of diabetics around the world. The world health organization has announced plans to diversify insulin production on a global scale. Officials with the organization, which is part of the united nations, say diabetes is becoming much more prevalent at a time when the supply of insulin is too low and prices are too high. The agency's two-year pilot project involves evaluating insulin developed by pharmaceutical companies to ensure quality and affordability. If enough manufacturers participate, the program would be expanded to provide insulin to more patients.
