Diabetes Australia was established in 1984, and is the national body for people affected by all types of diabetes and those at risk.  We are committed to reducing the impact of diabetes.  

Our core focus areas are people affected by all types of diabetes, this includes people with type 1 diabetes, people with type 2 diabetes, women with gestational diabetes, people with other forms of diabetes, their families and carers, and people at risk of developing diabetes.

Diabetes Australia works in partnership with consumers, health professionals and researchers.  Our strategic priorities are:

  • Diabetes Leadership (national advocacy, raising profile and awareness and local, national and global influence)
  • Diabetes Management (national self-management programs, prevent complications and building capacity)
  • Diabetes Prevention (prevention programs for those at risk, diabetes  and healthy communities, workplaces and environments)
  • Diabetes Research (tell the research story, influence research funding and influence the research agenda)

National Diabetes Week is 12-18 July - more information
