Australian and New Zealand Cerebral Palsy Strategy

Australian and New Zealand Cerebral Palsy Strategy

08, April 2020

Cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood and people with cerebral palsy experience significant barriers in everyday life. Complex and lifelong physical, medical, educational and social needs associated with cerebral palsy remain unmet. Furthermore, relative to the condition’s prevalence, cerebral palsy remains under-recognised both at a societal level and within the political arena. 

As such, a targeted Australian and New Zealand Cerebral Palsy Strategy has been developed. The Australian and New Zealand Cerebral Palsy Strategy reflects a united voice informed by people with cerebral palsy, their families, professionals and researchers across Australia and New Zealand.
