Equitable access to diabetes eye health services

Improving access to eye health services in Aotearoa

Project Summary

We have received HRC funding (2020-23) to explore how diabetes eye care services can be more accessible and responsive in Auckland and Counties Manukau.

The project is a partnership between diabetes eye care service providers, planners, researchers and Māori health and wellbeing advocates.

We will work collaboratively with people with diabetes and their whānau to understand where, how and why people with diabetes become disconnected from diabetes eye care services and identify strategies to improve equitable access and ultimately avoid vision loss.
