Summary of activities

"Diabetes Australia is the national body for people affected by all types of diabetes and those at risk. A non-profit organisation, Diabetes Australia works in partnership with consumers, health professionals, and researchers. We are committed to reducing the impact of diabetes. Diabetes Australia's core focus areas are:(1)people affected by all types of diabetes - this includes people with type 1 diabetes, people with type 2 diabetes, women with gestational diabetes, people with other forms of diabetes, their families and carers;(2)people at risk of developing diabetes. Some of the key activities and achievements in the 2017-18 financial year include: (1) The Diabetes Australia 60th Anniversary Dinner at Parliament House on 17 October 2017 was a resounding success. Diabetes Australia commenced (as the Diabetes Federation of Australia) in 1957. The event also celebrated the 30th year of the successful partnership with Government in delivering the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS). The event was well attended by Parliamentarians, Department of Health staff, our many partner organisations and supporters and highlighted the sustained efforts of Diabetes Australia and the NDSS supporting people affected by diabetes. Diabetes Australia Board members, senior management, staff and member organisations continued to work with the Australian Government and Commonwealth Department of Health to develop the Implementation Plan for the Australian National Diabetes Strategy 2016-2020. (2) Diabetes Australia worked with the Minister for Health and Department to support the rapid implementation of the Government’s new $54 million Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) initiative from 1 April 2017. This implementation has been very successful and over 9,000 Australian families with a child or young person with type 1 diabetes have been able to access CGM at no cost through the National Diabetes Services Scheme administered by Diabetes Australia. We have also provided some CGM education and support during 2017-18. (3) Diabetes Australia raised awareness and advocated for various national diabetes priorities in the federal Parliament and to State/Territory Governments during the year. These included: (a)Diabetes related amputations – 4,400 reasons to take diabetes seriously. This is a campaign in which we hope to end avoidable amputations related to diabetes in a generation. Diabetes Australia is promoting a national diabetes amputations prevention initiative;(b) Early detection of diabetes - we conducted an awareness event in the national Parliament to promote early detection of type 2 diabetes and focusing on the estimated 500,000 Australians who have silent, undiagnosed type 2 diabetes……. More details regarding the key activities in 2017-18, please refer to the Financial Statement."
