World Diabetes Day Appeal

Medical services we take for granted in cities and large towns are in short supply in rural and remote northern Western Australia.

Managing diabetes and the resulting complications can be difficult. In the Kimberley, it is an even tougher challenge.  One of the frequent complications is foot ulcers, which without treatment, can lead to amputations.

Thanks to generous community donations, Diabetes WA is helping to significantly reduce preventable amputations.



Thank you to our project partners for helping us launch this much-needed initiative:

  • Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services
  • Broome Regional Aboriginal Medical Service
  • Derby Aboriginal Health Service
  • Ord Valley Aboriginal Health Service
  • Yura Yungi Medical Service
  • Royal Perth Bentley Hospital Group
  • Sir Charles Gairdner Osborne Park Health Care Group
