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 2018-19 financial year include: (1) In January 2019 Mr Barry O’Farrell, former Premier of New South Wales, commenced as Diabetes Australia’s new President and Board Chair. The retiring President, Judi Moylan AO has taken up a new role as Diabetes Australia’s Government Affairs Advisor;(2) Diabetes Australia Board members, senior management, staff and member organisations continued to work with the Australian Government and Commonwealth Department of Health to further implement activities flowing from the Australian National Diabetes Strategy 2016-2020;(3) The Morrison Government has confirmed that Diabetes Australia will continue to deliver NDSS programs and services over a four-year period from 1 July 2020 and a new NDSS Agreement will be developed in 2019-20. The Government has also confirmed its commitment to the KeepSight (diabetes vision loss and blindness prevention) program and will work with Diabetes Australia to ensure that the program remains sustainable over the long term;(4) Diabetes Australia worked with the Minister of Health and Department to support the expansion of Federal Government’s $100 million Continuous Glucose Monitoring Funding Initiative through the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS). Continuous glucose monitors were first subsidised in April 2017 for children and young people with type 1 diabetes, but this was limited to those under 21 years of age. From 1 March 2019, subsidised access has been expanded to include: (a) Women with type 1 diabetes who are actively planning pregnancy, pregnant, or immediately post-pregnancy;(b) People with type 1 diabetes aged 21 years or older who have a valid concession card and have a high clinical need;(c) Children and young people under 21 with conditions very similar to type 1 diabetes who require insulin; This implementation of the CGM initiative has been vey successful with over 14,500 individuals and families affected by type 1 diabetes able to access CGM at no cost through the NDSS administered by Diabetes Australia. We have also provided some CGM education and support during 2018-19…… More details regarding the key activities in 2018-19, please refer to the Financial Statement.
