Diabetes is a major health problem for Indigenous Australians. More Indigenous Australians are diagnosed with diabetes than non-Indigenous Australians and Indigenous Australians suffer the fourth highest rate of type 2 diabetes in the world.
Culturally appropriate resources have been published for the Australian Indigenous community. The resources are crucial as Australia’s Indigenous population is at a significantly higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes in comparison to the rest of the community.
A series of Information Sheets have been created using a $10,000 grant from the Arthur Hatt and William Henry Hutchinson Charitable Trusts - managed by Perpetual Philanthropic Foundations.
