Polio NZ Inc
Polio NZ Inc is an Incorporated Society and Registered Charity dedicated to seeking support for people who have had poliomyelitis. It does this through information sharing and where possible, assistance to polio society members and their families.
They maintain a Facebook page for polio survivors, their families, friends and supporters to share information and ideas and connect with other polio survivors. They also maintain a website for information for polio survivors and health professionals who are treating polio survivors.
A YouTube Channel is used to publish talks from their conferences that are useful for polio survivors to manage the late effects of polio as they age, their families and health professionals. Managed by a voluntary Board who reside all over New Zealand they meet monthly by teleconference. A current focus is training health professionals in the late effects of polio and establishing specialist services for assessment and rehabilitation for survivors experiencing the late effects of polio as they age. Because of their various disabilities and geographic location, the internet makes it possible for them work.
PrimoWireless proudly provides an ultrafast broadband connection to the Polio NZ Board.
“We are extremely grateful to PrimoWireless for providing free internet connection and data for our Secretary who resides in New Plymouth”.
