Head and brain injuries have often unrecognised, serious long term harm.

Both head injury from trauma and brain injury from neurotoxic compounds causes chronic brain inflammation that needs immediate/acute and appropriate treatment as well as the best chronic care our country can offer. We will allocate funding for campaigns to attempt to reduce the most common causes of head and brain injuries.

The NZ Outdoors Party will allocate funding for research into the best treatments and supplements for healing head and brain injury, and make sure that this information is shared and used across the board in hospitals, clinics and in the sports sector and treatment is adequately funded.
