The Aboriginal life! program is a type 2 diabetes prevention program for Victorian Aboriginal people and their families.
The program aims to identify people at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes using the Diabetes risk test (Type 2 diabetes risk assessment tool for Aboriginal Victorians), and to deliver a healthy lifestyle program (Road to good health initiative) to reduce the risk of progression to diabetes.
Studies have sown that interventions that support lifestyle change can prevent up to 58% of the expected progression to diabetes.
The program is coordinated by the Victorian branch of Diabetes Australia as part of the mainstream Life! program.
