Goal 6 of the Strategy focusses on the impact of diabetes among other priority groups. This includes culturally and linguistically diverse people, older Australians, people living in rural and remote areas, and people with mental health issues. A number of indicators were identified in the implementation plan to measure the progress of Goal 6, some of which were included in Goals 1-4. Where possible, these indicators have been included under the relevant goals for the following measures of progress in the Australian National Diabetes Strategy 2016–2020: People developing or with type 2 diabetes among priority groups; People with diabetes among priority groups with above-target HbA1c, cholesterol, albuminuria and blood pressure; People among priority groups who are overweight, obese or have other modifiable risk factors.
Two indicators are reported in this section specifically for Goal 6.
People developing or with type 2 diabetes among priority groups:
6.1 People with diabetes by mental health status
People among priority groups who are overweight, obese or have other modifiable risk factors:
6.2 Overweight or obesity by mental health status
