For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, Health Workers and Health Professionals

Posters and Brochures

National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) posters and brochures are helpful in assisting NDSS awareness and explain what the NDSS is and does. These resources are ideal for displaying in health service waiting rooms and community spaces to encourage all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples living with diabetes to be registered with the NDSS and have access to NDSS services and product. 

To download these resources, and others, visit the NDSS website.
