On the 27th July 2022 the Director General of Health (DG) ordered the Waipa District Council to start fluoridation. This was done under the jurisdiction of the Health Act which was amended in 2021 to include a clause that put sole decision making for fluoridation into the hands of the DG.
People in Waipa are not happy and are opposing this. Please help by contacting your local coordinator Kane Titchener at .
