Diabetes Australia is a leading authority on diabetes as well as being a major provider of health care, education and assistance to people with diabetes in Australia.

Diabetes Australia is a federation consisting of 12 major diabetes groups. Within the national body, each State and Territory member organisation works closely with medical, scientific and research associations to develop national policy on strategy issues. The national office, located in Canberra, acts on behalf of the member organisations in negotiations with governments to ensure relevant and necessary programs are developed and maintained.

A major community awareness campaign will be launched in July 1999. The campaign will focus on the detection of type 2 diabetes among the estimated 350 000 Australians who have diabetes but do not know it.
