Diabetes Youth NZ Inc is a voluntary society established to provide support for children with diabetes and their families.
Diabetes Youth New Zealand (DYNZ) was established in 1991 and is affiliated to Diabetes New Zealand. There are networks of youth support groups located throughout New Zealand that assist DYNZ to provide support. DYNZ also provides:
DYNZ advocates on behalf of all young people with diabetes. Recent projects have included submissions to Pharmac for medication supply and subsidies (Lantus, Levemir and Blood Ketone Strips) and involvement with the Ministry of Education for school health guidelines. DYNZ Camping Guidelines have been updated and are currently awaiting NZSSD approval.
