CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT

Aboriginal people continue to experience greater health risks, poorer health and shorter life expectancy than non-Aboriginal people, partly because of higher rates of chronic disease such as diabetes, heart and lung disease.


A chronic condition is one that has been or is likely to be present for six months or longer. It includes, but is not limited to asthma, cancer, cardiovascular illness, diabetes mellitus, musculoskeletal conditions and stroke.  Mallee District Aboriginal Services operates a wide range of services aimed at supporting people with chronic disease, including chronic disease management plans and preventative programs.

Eligible clients can receive 'no gap' services at our clinics, with no out-of-pocket expenses.  They can be referred to MDAS chronic disease programs from our clinics, or by any General Practitioner.

People with certain chronic conditions are able to access the Care Coordination and Supplementary Services Program.
