These resources have been developed by the Australian Community Centre for Diabetes (ACCD) with funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing from 2009-2010. They are designed for use in pilot programs with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities as a basis for developing culturally appropriate materials. Material in languages other than English has been developed with the generous assistance of Bilingual Health Educators and are not accredited translation of the English originals. Victoria University does not warrant that the translations are accurate or complete.
