Development of a Type 2 Diabetes Care Strategy

Diabetes is an on-going and growing concern for Aboriginal people in South Australia. The Wardliparingga, Aboriginal Research Unit of SAHMRI is establishing a large program of work that will deliver high quality scientific research, raise the Aboriginal community’s awareness of diabetes its prevention, management and consequences, and use knowledge gathered to inform policy and practice. 

The development of a Type 2 Diabetes Strategy for Aboriginal people in South Australia is an opportunity for the Aboriginal community in collaboration with all leading service providers to inform policy and practice of diabetes care provision across the state. The method for developing the Strategy has been informed by the Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia (AHCSA) Board and SA Health is funding its development.
