Australia has a proud history of bipartisan support for new diabetes technologies.
An incoming Albanese Labor Government will match the Government’s announcement regarding access to Flash Glucose Monitoring and Continuous Glucose Monitoring devices for adults who currently miss out.
This means that every Australian with Type 1 diabetes will get access to a potentially life-saving continuous glucose monitoring device.
More than 1.8 million Australians have diabetes, and Labor has a proud record of supporting them, extending back to Kevin Rudd’s establishment of the Insulin Pump Program in 2008.
Whatever the election result, Australians with Type 1 diabetes will get better support.
This is a testament to the campaign work of the thousands of Australians who are living with Type 1 diabetes and their families.
