DO Details

DANII Foundation is calling on all Australians to support the NATIONAL DIABETES AWARENESS WEEK campaign and help to raise awareness of diabetes nationally during 10th to 16th July 2022.

DANII Foundation invites you to gather some friends and HOST a BUNNINGS BAR-B-CURE Fundraiser at your local store. With your support, we can increase awareness and understanding to the greater community about what is TYPE ONE DIABETES and raise some of the challenges faced, and highlight the day-to-day impact on individuals, carers, and families.

Awareness of Diabetes is a National Public Health issue and much still needs to be done, collectively and individually, for better prevention, diagnosis and management of the condition.

2022 marks the 100th anniversary of the use of insulin.  This year in National Diabetes Week our focus is to highlight the huge gap between the people who need access to insulin to control their diabetes, as well as essential technologies such as blood glucose meters and test strips, and those who actually have affordable access.  Type ONE diabetes doesn’t disappear when one turns 21!

The week also comes at a time when the world continues to live through the COVID-19 pandemic, which has not only resulted in a high proportion of people with diabetes among hospitalised patients with severe manifestations of COVID-19 and among those who have succumbed to the virus, but has also led to severe disruption of diabetes services.

In the lead-up to National Diabetes Week, DANII Foundation will highlight not only the challenges, but more importantly the solutions, to scaling-up access to diabetes technology, medicines and care.
