Prevention Project

There is still a lot of work to be done in the area of diabetes and obesity prevention. While there are lifestyle programs that advise the population on healthy ways to avoid the disease, not enough is being done to prevent the disease. We are investing in prevention projects, particularly for the 16-25 year age group, and Aboriginal and CALD communities. The prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes is higher and the onset younger in these communities.
