Insulin Pumps

Question from Moscow, Russia:

I am considering swiching to insulin pump therapy for my five-year-old daughter. Because the only way of getting the pump in Russia is self-purchase, I am looking for information about any available program that helps children with type 1 diabetes worldwide and provides help in getting an insulin pump for free or at a reduced cost. Do you know of any such programs?


I am unaware of any program that provides financial assistance for insulin pumps outside the United States.
