Abstract

In recent years, Western Australia (WA) has seen a sharp increase in the size of its African population due to both economic and refugee migration. Concurrently, there has been a rise in the numbers of African teenagers presenting to health services with uncontrolled symptoms of diabetes. The aim of this investigation was to discover what migrant African parents now residing in WA knew about the dietary needs of their diabetic child.
