Harry Benjamin Syndrome of Aotearoa New Zealand has revamped its front page. Visitors to HBS-NZ will notice several changes including the addition of a moderated guest-book. We hope our guests ( and that is what you are) will treat this respectfully.
Otherwise the new home page is designed to reflect the site's associations with OII. The Organization Intersex International will have a new Australian affiliate in the near future. HBS-NZ is repositioning itself to act as a 'feeder' to this new web-site, which will be known as OII Australia.
Currently New Zealand lacks any readily accessible web-based facility specifically for people who fall into the traditionally intersexed categories. HBS-NZ already fields inquiries on these issues. It is now envisaged that IS folk will be better able to get access to OII resources specific to their particular situation by simply following the links from HBS-NZ through to the other OII affiliates.
Once established, OII Australia will fill a vacuum in this region by providing a voice and a focus for IS issues on both sides of the Tasman, leaving HBS-NZ to concentrate on its core issues, whilst working in tandem with its Australian counterpart on those matters that concern us both.
