Australian National Diabetes Audit (ANDA)

Page last updated: 16 May 2017

The Australian Government has funded ANDA (previously known as the Australian National Diabetes Information Audit and Benchmarking project (ANDIAB)) since its introduction in 1998. ANDA is one of the few existing Australian longitudinal studies into diabetes.

The purpose of ANDA is to undertake the collection, collation, analysis, audit and reporting of clinical diabetes, patient education and self-care data in specialist diabetes centres across all states and territories in Australia. Data collection is conducted by the National Association of Diabetes Centres, which is a national collective of over 60 Diabetes Centres across all states and territories.

The data collected is used by specialist diabetes centres to benchmark their practice processes and patient outcome data against that of their peers, and provide cross-sectional data on the clinical status of individuals with diabetes attending these services.

Data from the project, which is collected on a calendar year basis, is also used in diabetes publications prepared by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.
