of children with poverty related conditions is on the increase on
the Kapiti Coast.
Public health nurse, Shennan Brown, says
recently in the area, she has had to deal with a large number of
children with advanced cases of school sores, scabies and head lice.
Mrs Brown says there is hard evidence that the earlier cases
like these are treated the easier they are to treat, and the Public
health Organisations are there to help families in need.
