Like other diabetes organisations around the world, Diabetes WA is committed to assisting researchers both in the search for a cure and in the improvement of current management and care techniques for this condition.
We are a member of Diabetes Australia and as such we support the Diabetes Australia Research Trust (DART). Through this trust we provide funding towards the prevention, management and cure of diabetes, as well as enabling and fostering young and upcoming researchers in this field.
In the past decade this trust has invested $26 million into 388 diabetes research projects across the country.
Currently, thanks to funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), Diabetes WA is working in partnership with Charles Darwin University to determine the acceptability and impact of the DESMOND program for Aboriginal people living with type 2 diabetes. To find out more about this and other research projects, please contact us on 1300 001 880.
Advocacy is defined as speaking on behalf of or in support of another person or policy.
