Australia is a nation rich in history

Our original inhabitants – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders – have been living here for at least 40,000 years, see with the remainder of Australia's population descending from migrants from over 200 countries who have settled here since 1778 ('Life in Australia'. 2007).

Australia continues to welcome people from all over the world – making our country an amazing melting pot of culture, language, beliefs and values.

Diabetes is on the rise

No longer is a disease of predominantly rich nations, the prevalence of diabetes steadily increasing everywhere and it does not discriminate.

It has been established that certain culturally and linguistically diverse groups in Australia have a high prevalence of diabetes compared with the Australian-born population.

Combined with people born in certain regions of the globe have an increased risk of developing diabetes, notably those from Northern Africa and the Middle East, Asia, Southern and Eastern Europe and South Pacific Islands. These groups also have an increased rate of hospitalization and mortality as a result of their diabetes.

There are many factors that contribute to the higher level of risk experienced by some culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) groups including both non-modifiable risk factors such as genetics and modifiable risk factors such as migration and its associated challenges.

It is envisaged that this section of our website will provide assistance to people from CALD backgrounds

It may also be helpful for those needing information for family members, friends or health care consumers. It covers a wide range of subject matter dealing not only with diabetes but issues that may impact upon diabetes management, such as depression, smoking and men's health.
