Moorditj djena - Strong feet

 

Overview

Moorditj djena is a podiatry and diabetes education service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Perth metropolitan area. Part of the national COAG 'Close the gap' initiative, this program has been developed in partnership with local community members, North Metropolitan Health Service (NMHS), South Metropolitan Health Service (SMHS) and Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service. The primary objective of the program is to increase access to podiatry and diabetes services which are culturally secure for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Moorditj djena aims to help the community keep their feet healthy and strong, especially those at high risk of foot complications as a result of chronic disease.
