Minimising the impact of diabetes
Diabetes WA is the peak body and voice of people living with and/or caring for someone with diabetes in Western Australia. Our mission is to minimise the impact of diabetes in the WA community by:
- Providing diabetes-related products to the Western Australian community to help people manage the condition.
- Reducing the occurrence of type 2 diabetes by informing and coaching consumers who are at risk.
- Mitigating the health and social impact of type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes through the provision of education and support services.
- Supporting research into a cure for diabetes and delivering interventions to people with diabetes.
This important work cannot be achieved alone. It is through the generosity and support of the WA community that Diabetes WA is able to ensure this work is delivered and sustained for the future.
Aboriginal Health has being identified as a priority action area for Diabetes WA, with a dedicated Aboriginal Health Team forming part of the Diabetes WA Health Services division.
