Latest update

Endometriosis NZ  13 April 2011

Posted by: Endometriosis New Zealand

Endometriosis affects at least 1 in 10 girls & women, is familial, non-discriminatory & estimated more prevalent than the combined numbers with breast & prostate cancer, diabetes I & II & AIDS in 15-49 age group. Symptoms are debilitating impacting on quality of life & affecting schooling, career, relationships, mental health and compromising fertility. Awareness & symptom recognition is poor eg 8+ year diagnostic delay. There are no NZ treatment guidelines which can mean hit & miss treatments & misdiagnosis. It is a huge fiscal & human burden costing NZ millions in absenteeism & 11 working hours per woman/week in lost productivity. Your DONATION helps!
