The three companies that dominate the global market for insulin have launched various programs to expand the reach of their medicines in dozens of low and middle-income countries — but their efforts remain patchy and equitable access consequently remains out of reach, according to a new analysis.

But a more troubling issue is that the companies failed to register their products — both the older human form of insulin and newer analogue varieties — with regulators in many countries.
