Article 25.1 is a really important declaration to Asthma NZ, it states that everyone has the right to adequate housing. In NZ 53% of us live in houses that are below minimum insulation standards, meaning that unless we can afford huge power bills we will endure a cold, harsh winter...indoors!
Over the coming months, we will be doing all we can to raise this issue and more importantly provide you with the knowledge to make immediate low-cost improvements to ensure a more comfortable winter with less illness and respiratory exacerbations.
Keeping you and your family out of the hospital due to respiratory illness this winter is our priority.
