REDUCING THE IMPACT OF DIABETES

KIA MIMITI TE TAIMAHA O TE MATE HUKA

Our Mana Tū programme was co-designed alongside patients with diabetes, clinicians, health service planners and whānau ora providers to improve the impact of whānau living with pre-diabetes and people with poorly controlled diabetes.

Diabetes is a long-term condition that greatly impacts the lives of Māori. From the number of families it effects, to the level of complications suffered – it is far more prevalent in Māori whānau than non-Māori. Renal failure (kidneys) is one of the complications of diabetes.

There is huge scope to lessen diabetes disparities. But the condition is complex and requires a well-considered, long-term approach. The NHC believes in taking a holistic approach to care for people struggling to manage their type 2 diabetes, along with tackling the wider issues around cause, management and complications. See the Mana Tū case study.
