Health project tackles Indigenous diabetes

Date posted: 19 July 2011

The Western Desert kidney health project will visit Laverton in Western Australia's Goldfields this week with a mobile clinic to test for as well as work with the community to educate them about what causes diabetes and kidney disease. There is a high incidence of organ disease and diabetes within the local Aboriginal population and the project aims to reduce liver-related illnesses by 20 per cent over three years, targeting 10 Aboriginal communities.
