The Outdoors Party considers health a major issue for the disabled community. We will increase funding for alternative and complementary natural health care – whether using rongoa, or herbs, vitamins and minerals, functional medicine, special diets, osteopathic care etc, to help our people live healthier lives and reduce the need for pharmaceutical medication and their side effects.
Many intellectual disabilities are due to vaccine induced brain injury, which bring with it an extra set of health challenges. The Outdoors Party has policies to ensure vaccine safety in the future. We will change legislation to make vaccine manufacturers accountable and liable for ongoing health and disability care and loss of quality of life.
We will make it easier to get ACC payouts for medical misadventure that has caused disabilities.
