DVA Supports Diabetes Management

The Rehabilitation Appliances Program (RAP) assists eligible members of the veteran community to be as independent and self-reliant as possible in their own homes.

The State and Territory Organisations of Diabetes Australia have an agreement with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) to support Veterans with diabetes management by subsidising diabetes related products and equipment such as blood glucose monitors and pen injection devices to minimise the impact of living with diabetes.
