Advocacy and Submissions

ADEA has a strong strategic focus on developing a structured approach to informing and influencing the government agenda on diabetes at federal and state levels.


ADEA responds to discussion papers and issues on relevant topics about diabetes education and healthcare matters. ADEA occasionally contributes to submissions made by other organisations.

In keeping with our principle of consultation and seeking members input, ADEA has established a Policy Advisory Group to support our policy work. If you are interested in joining this group please contact us.
