Ask Health Ministers to support CGM Funding under the NDSS

The Federal Health Minister Sussan Ley recently received a report from the National Diabetes Strategy consultation. Any recommendations will be presented to the Australian Health Ministers Advisory Council (AHMAC). Following on from the overwhelming submissions to the consultation seeking funding for CGM technology please support the DANII Foundation's call for Federal Health Minister Ley to take immediate steps to provide CGM under the NDSS. This email will reach Minister Ley and all state Health Ministers.
