Iran has a population of around 77 million, of whom 4.6 million people are currently estimated to have diabetes. Of these only 60% (approx. 2.7 million) are diagnosed according to a Novo Nordisk report in 2015.
Consequently, Novo Nordisk made a decision to invest in a new production facility with the purpose to provide access to important and life-saving pharmaceutical products such as insulin and haemophilia products to the patients in Iran, and to improve the healthcare of the Iranian people.
