Diabetes Australia was established in 1984 as a national federated body comprising state and territory organisations supporting people with diabetes and those professional and research bodies particularly concerned with the treatment and prevention of diabetes.
Our purpose is to help all people affected by diabetes and those at risk and to contribute to the search for a cure.
Diabetes Australia works in partnership with diabetes health professionals and educators, researchers and healthcare providers to minimise the impact of diabetes on the Australian community.
In collaboration with state and territory diabetes organisations and through the administration of the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS)
, Diabetes Australia provides practical assistance, information and subsidised products to over 1,000,000 Australians diagnosed with diabetes.
Diabetes Australia works to raise the awareness about the seriousness of diabetes, promoting prevention and early detection strategies and lobbying for better standards of care. Diabetes Australia is also a significant financial contributor to research into better treatments for diabetes and the search for a cure.
Diabetes Australia is committed to turning diabetes around through awareness
and a cure
