Kaupapa Whakatupuku Materopatanga Polio

The risk of polio epidemics re-occurring in New Zealand increases if immunisation uptake within the population is below optimal levels. Polio NZ Inc. supports Ministry of Health requirements on District Health Boards to be actively pursuing immunisation levels well into 90%+ of the population. Are all your family members immunised? The only protection from polio and its potential to paralyses is immunisation and vaccinations are free.

Kei te tautoko a Polio NZ Inc i nga kaupapa whakato kano o te wa nei hei tiaki i te taupori ki nga mate pukupuku.

Orthotic-Polio-NZ

Ratonga Orthotic

Orthotics were a concern for many at the 2014 conference. Work has been undertaken with the Health and Rehabilitation Research Institute of Chicago to develop a survey on orthotics issues and needs of all our members. This was piloted with Christchurch members of Polio NZ and then sent to 575 polio survivors, replies being received from 253 people, 128 of who use orthotic services and 125 who did not. The results show the provision of orthotic services to polio survivors could be improved in a number of areas. Recommendations for improvement include better assessment of service, a constructive dialogue between DHBs, orthotic providers and Polio NZ and representation to the Ministry of Health for the better provision of orthotic services through policy innovation and funding to DHBs.
