  5. 5. Dear Executive, According to the Australian Diabetes Council, 275 people a day develop diabetes in Australia. Yet in Type 2 diabetes, the most common form of diabetes, many cases are preventable. With this in mind, prevention and early intervention in diabetes will play an important role in public health policy. Informa Australia is pleased to be partnering with the Australian Diabetes Council to co-host the inaugural Diabetes Policy conference. This unique event will be held held on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd December 2010 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Darling Harbour, Sydney. The inaugural Diabetes Policy Conference provides you with a platform to discuss the challenge of diabetes in public health. Join leading practitioners and policy makers and benefit from invaluable insights into the policy approach to prevention and intervention of diabetes. This is an excellent opportunity for you to meet with your peers and health professionals to look at the way forward for tackling this growing problem. The Australian government has already announced $436 million in funding to general practice to provide integrated, multidisciplinary care initiatives. This conference comes at a key time for developing working strategies for how to make this funding effective. We look forward to welcoming you the Diabetes Policy Conference in Sydney in December! At such a pivotal time in health policy reform, this is conference provides an ideal opportunity to collectively discuss and help shape the policy approach to diabetes in Australia.
