The Togolese Diabetes Association (ATD) is a nonprofit, apolitical association established on May 16, 1992 on the initiative of a diabetic patient who had knowledge of the existence of the association in GHANA, and two doctors working in the field of diabetes. They were quickly joined by other physicians and diabetes patients. This Association was originally called "Togolese Diabetics Association." The current name was adopted in 1999 to better mark the ATD is open to both non-diabetics as people with diabetes. Its headquarters is located in Lomé, with sections in all regions of Togo.
