VACCHO works on a number projects in partnership with Diabetes Australia- Victoria. These include the Aboriginal Life! Taking Action on Diabetes program, which involves training and supporting Aboriginal Health Workers to deliver the Road to Good Health diabetes prevention program. In addition a number of Koori-specific diabetes education resources have been developed including:

  • Feltman: a life-sized felt tool which can be used to explain diabetes and its complications
  • Feltmum (currently underway): an addition to Feltman which covers diabetes in pregnancy
  • Pictorial guides: full colour booklets with minimal text which provide simple information on:
    • Exercise & Diabetes
    • Healthy Eating
    • Managing my Diabetes
    • My Feet and Diabetes
