Diabetes Australia is the national body for all people affected by all types of diabetes, and those at risk of type 2 diabetes. 1.2 million Australians have been diagnosed with diabetes and a further 280 Australians develop diabetes every day – that’s 1 every 5 minutes…
We are the national “voice” for people affected by diabetes. We work to raise awareness of the seriousness and impact of diabetes and to generate more support from governments, business and the community.
We develop and promote type 2 diabetes prevention and early detection strategies, and work to create healthy communities, workplaces and environments. We work to strengthen care and management for all people with diabetes, developing self-care education and support, and strengthen programs to prevent the complications of diabetes.
A donation to Diabetes Australia is a donation towards:
• the search for a cure for diabetes,
• greater support for families and children living with diabetes, and;
• national awareness campaigns to reduce the number of Australians developing type 2 diabetes and diabetes-related complications.
