The Department of Health: Development of the Australian National Diabetes Strategy


Date: 25 May 2015

The new Australian National Diabetes Strategy seeks to prioritise Australia’s response to diabetes, and to identify approaches to reduce the impact of diabetes in the community.

The RACGP has only responded to questions in the diabetes strategy relevant to general practice.

The strategy is part of the Government’s overall strategic framework for managing chronic diseases which recognises the shared health determinants, risk factors and multi-morbidities that exist across a broad range of chronic conditions.
