NZ absent on cerebral palsy operation

Wednesday 6 Mar 2013 7:16 p.m.

Cerebral palsy is one of those things we think we know about, but many of us don't.

It's the most common physical disability that children suffer, and there's a surgery that can fix one of the biggest physical effects – a child's walk.

But New Zealand doesn't do this operation. And if you pay for it yourself, overseas, there's no funding for the intensive post-surgery physical therapy either.

Watch the video for the full report from Anna Burns-Francis, with Kali.
