Pre-diabetes and diabetes are at epidemic proportions in New Zealand with the Auckland region over represented in certain populations. This programme works with communities who have the highest rates of pre-diabetes and diabetes in Auckland.
Diabetes New Zealand Auckland Branch has designed a mobile service that goes to where these communities work, gather, play, pray and eat. The use of health navigators from the local culture is also vital to the success.
Those who been identified as either at risk of pre-diabetes or diabetes through testing in the community setting, will be visited by the navigators in either their home, community or work place to ensure the engagement with primary care services occurs.
