Abstract

We aimed to determine the prevalence of youth-onset type 2 diabetes in First Nations people across northern Australia, using cross-sectional data from primary health-care services (appendix pp 2–6), including both government and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services, and to determine the characteristics of these young people. Young people attended participating health services at least once between Jan 1, 2016, and Dec 31, 2017.
