Diabetes management and care program

 

Overview

The Diabetes management and care program aims to prevent the incidence of type 2 diabetes in Indigenous communities in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Program team members from The Unity of First People of Australia work with the community to develop a sustainable community health plan that they own and manage themselves. The community health plan incorporates the prevention, management, treatment and care of diabetes and promotes lifestyle-changing behaviours for a healthier community

The program is funded by Caritas Australia, The Catholic agency for international aid and development.
