https://killexams.com/exam_list/EXINKillexams : Extreme drought causing home foundation issues in western U.S.
If you've ever noticed cracks in or around your home, foundation experts, like Rick Donohoe with Groundworks Colorado, say might be time to call a professional.
"Your largest investment for most people is their home," Donohoe said.
Donohoe is a certified field inspector. He says there are certain signs to look for to see whether the foundation is at risk.
"Cracks in drywall, cracks and mortar joints, cracks in the actual foundation itself," Donohoe said. "A lot of people can see their foundation if they don't have a finished basement."
Many people are aware that flooding can cause shifts in a house's foundation. The nation's leading foundation company says It's been a consistent problem for homeowners in states like Florida, Georgia and Texas, but drought can also be a cause for concern.
"The soils, for the most part are supporting the foundations, supporting your house," Donohoe said. "So as they dry up, you have significant load coming down on the foundation."
Right now, scientist Andreas Prein with US National Center for Atmospheric Research says the southwestern U.S. is experiencing the most severe drought.
"A megadrought is defined as a drought lasts for 20 years or longer," Prein said.
The only time he says states like California, Nevada, New Mexico, or Utah get out of these dry spells is when there is massive flooding.
"So this is also something we see more often," Prein said. "I would say that droughts or dry conditions are ended by very heavy events and then you can have dramatic flooding."
Very dry soil followed by very wet soil likely means more problems for your house. To prevent a couple-thousand-dollar bill from turning into a 50-thousand dollar bill, it's better to fix it sooner rather than later.

The Apple Watch Ultra introduced one of the most significant design tweaks to the Apple Watch since its inception — the Action button. While every other Apple Watch has two physical controls, the Action button is a third that’s meant to help outdoor athletes pause workouts, turn on the flashlight, call for help with a siren, and more. The main logic is that, unlike touchscreens, physical buttons are immune to sweaty fingers and gloves.
While it’s likely the Action button will evolve over time, at launch, it’s essentially a set of preselected shortcuts or “actions.” Your options are Workout, Stopwatch, Waypoint, Backtrack, Dive, Flashlight, and Shortcuts. Some of these actions have secondary functions dubbed “gestures.” Within each action, you’ll be able to see what gestures are available to you.
The available actions are relatively self-explanatory, but some offer more choices than others. The Workout action, for example, allows you to either open the native Workout app or immediately start a selected activity of your choosing without the traditional 3-2-1 countdown. Pressing the Action button during a workout will then trigger a specific function. For a running workout, it’ll let you create segments.
Triathletes using the Multisport workout can instead manually switch from one leg of the race to the next. Conversely, the Flashlight action is a straightforward, single-purpose shortcut to turn your Ultra into a flashlight.
So let’s begin.
You’ll be prompted to program the Action button when you first set up your Ultra. You can either follow the prompts at this point or tweak it later. We’re going to jump into the latter. Chances are, you’re going to switch up how you use the Action button as you experiment with what works best for your needs. The good news is, you can edit what the Action button does both on your Watch and from your phone.
On the Watch:
Navigate to Settings.
Scroll down to the new Action Button menu.
Tap Action and select between Workout, Stopwatch, Waypoint, Backtrack, Dive, Flashlight, Shortcut, and None.
The Workout and Shortcut actions offer some additional choices. In Workout, tap First Press, and pick whether you want to Open “Workout” or Start a Workout. If it’s the latter, you’ll see a list of your recently completed activities to select from.
If you select Shortcut, tap the Shortcut menu and select which one you want to trigger.
Scroll down to the Siren toggle to turn it on or off. If you enable the toggle, you can hold down the Action button for five seconds to bring up the Emergency SOS menu and activate the Siren there.
Note: the Workout and Dive actions each have an additional App setting, presumably so you can add a third-party app. Right now, however, you can only select between the native Workout and Depth apps. This will likely change in the future.
On your phone:
Open the Watch app.
Scroll down to Action Button.
Follow the same steps as above.
Pausing with the Action button
While single press gestures will depend on which action you select, most actions (except the Dive and Flashlight actions) will allow you to hit pause by pressing the Action Button and either the digital crown or side button. In the Dive app, doing this will instead activate a secondary action. It doesn’t do anything for the Flashlight action, however.
That’s it for now. The Action button is a brand spanking new feature, so a lot of this may change in the coming months as more developers think of ways to optimize for the Ultra’s hardware. In the meantime, have fun experimenting!

When it comes to choosing foundation, the options can be overwhelming. It’s not just shade ranges—there are the different coverage levels, finishes, and, of course, formulations. And while liquid formulas tend to rule the market, stick foundations have a particular enduring legacy. From classic, old-school beauty behemoths to new, cutting-edge indie brands, it seems like all the greats have their own take on the foundation stick. Merit Beauty's foundation stick even garnered a 10k person waitlist at its launch.
The real benefit of a foundation stick, according to celebrity makeup artist Amber Amos, is the control and ability to seamlessly adjust coverage. For lighter, more natural coverage, Amos suggests using a fluffy blending brush to pick up the product from the stick and blending into the skin. For fuller coverage, she likes to apply the stick directly to the skin, blending after with a brush or sponge.
And of course, reapplication and touch-ups are a cinch; simply throw a foundation stick in your purse and you’re good to go.
The only real risk when it comes to foundation sticks is going in too heavy, which, as Amos says, can happen with almost foundations regardless of formulation. Too much product can look cake-y and create creases. To avoid this, she suggests building up coverage in layers, and the beauty of a foundation stick is that you have total control over the coverage.
What’s more, Amos says foundation sticks can work for any skin type—it’s just about finding the formula that’s best for your specific concerns. If your skin tends to get oily, avoid creamier, emollient formulas; if you’re on the drier side, stay away from more mattifying iterations.
Ready to try one yourself? Ahead, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite foundation sticks.
As far as foundation sticks go, this one from Merit is surprisingly lightweight and creamy. So creamy, in fact, that it’s great for people with drier skin types who might traditionally shy away from foundation sticks (Well+Good’s senior beauty editor, Zoë Weiner, swears by the stuff for her own dry complexion). It buffs into the skin for a natural finish and is perfect for on-the-go touchups. Plus, the brand recently relaunched it so that it includes even more product in the new size.
The biggest perk of this foundation is that it comes in amazing, often-hard-to-find shades for darker complexions. The dual-ended stick features the pigment-rich formula and a buffing brush for easy application. Best of all, it’s not just a great foundation—fans say it’s the perfect cream contour (just get a shade or two darker than your skin tone).
Makeup Revolution’s Base Stick features a full-coverage formula with a dewy finish that glides on the skin. Despite a fairly lackluster shade range, it does blend into the skin seamlessly with either a brush or damp beauty sponge and covers unseenly blemishes in a snap.
With a soft-matte finish and full coverage payoff, this complexion stick is a favorite amongst people of color thanks to its thoughtful shade range and spot-on color matches. It melts into the skin and sets without creasing or caking; just remember to set it with a little powder for all-day wear.
Hourglass’s long-wearing Seamless Finish Foundation Stick is a classic for a reason; the waterproof, weightless foundation contains double the amount of pigment in regular foundations for a seriously full-coverage look that’s surprisingly blendable. It even adjusts to your body temperature to more easily blend into the skin.
Shade options: Comes in 32 shades, some currently out of stock.
With a unique transparent base, this formula features a blend of emollients like olive extract and shea butter to moisturize wherever the skin is dry. The buildable coverage applies smoothly and stays that way all day long—no creasing or separating mid-day.
Shade options: Available in 43 shades, sorted by category to help you find the right one.
This plant-powered formula blends best with a densely packed, kabuki-like brush and offers buildable coverage with natural, skin-like finish. While more expensive than its peers, I will say this foundation is downright luxe—especially the packaging, which comes in a chic, blush pink tone and features an oddly satisfying magnetic cap.
This is a true no-foundation-foundation—it has lightweight coverage that’s closer to a blur than a true foundation. It’s great for quick touch ups and blurring pores and imperfections. It features less wax than traditional foundation sticks, making it ultra-creamy but also more susceptible to heat damage and breakage from excessive pressure.
Shade options: Choose from 11 shades.

The best action cameras on the market stand out from competitors with features like easy hands-off control, portability, and versatility for use in any weather.
But before all else, an action camera must be able to capture moments without blur or lag. Plus, recorded footage must be crystal clear at a high resolution.
Action cameras differ from standard compacts or DSLRs because they focus on live-action capture rather than stills for portraiture or street photography. If you're on the hunt for an action camera, consider what activities you'll be using the camera for, like hiking, biking, swimming, and extreme sports. Plus, decide whether or not you'll want a video feature.
While GoPro remains a force to be reckoned with in the action camera space, rivals worth their salt have joined the market over the past few years. Here are ZDNET's recommendations for the best live action cameras in 2022.
Upgraded image sensor
Robust image stabilization
Expensive outside of sales events
5.3K(60fps) + 2.7K(240fps) video
HyperSmooth 5.0 video
Waterproof to 33ft
The GoPro remains one of the best action cameras. They aren't cheap, but in this case, you get the high-quality service you pay for.
The GoPro HERO11 is the vendor's flagship device, and the latest iteration has improving image quality and smooth transitions. Plus, it comes complete with a large 27-megapixel sensor, Hypersmooth technology, and a rugged chassis for use while swimming, biking, and more.
You can pick up a GoPro HERO11 Black with a discount at $399, if you subscribe to the yearly GoPro service. Alternatively, if you're willing to wait, GoPro is releasing the HERO11 Black Mini on October 25.
Insta360 is a relatively new entrant to the action camera market, but it's popular. The Insta360 X3 camera, which ZDNET considers a "joy to use," has a sleek form factor and a 360-degree field of view for capturing footage up to 5.7K via two 48mp image sensors (F1.9).
This device combines user-friendliness with great video capture and effects. The downside, however, is that Insta360 falls short when it comes to storage and transfers.
Image stabilization isn't quite on the same level as GoPro
4K video capture (120fps)
Waterproof to 16m
While DJI has been associated with drones and aerial shoots in the past, the vendor has branched out into action shoots on the ground -- and the Osmo Action 3 is a prime example.
This device is able to capture video in 4K at an impressive 120 frames per second and includes HorizonSteady technology, which automatically balances footage while you move. That means your footage stays steady whether you're busy rafting, biking, skiing, or otherwise.
The quick-release design also allows users to quickly switch between horizontal or vertical capture.
While image stabilization has improved in the Action line, users report that there is still room for improvement. Keep in mind, you will need to buy your own SD card for storage.
Excellent image stabilization
45-degree image tilt
Strong live streaming capabilities
Poor battery life
Some users report poor results in low-light situations
5.3K(60fps) + 4K(120fps) video resolution
23-megapixel photo capture
Hypersmooth 4.0 image stabilization
Waterproof up to 33ft
The GoPro HERO10 Black is an excellent option for action camera enthusiasts who want their device to tick every box. This camera sports excellent video resolution, strong still image capability, and a host of fun action features, including slow motion mode. This GoPro is also compatible with a variety of accessories and mods.
Considering the slightly lower price point compared to the HERO11 Black, we recommend the HERO10 Black if you want to try the GoPro without splurging on the most expensive option.
The GoPro HERO10 Black is $50 cheaper than the HERO11 Black, and while older, still remains an excellent action camera for your adventures. You can also save $150 if you sign up for a GoPro subscription.
More options for still photography than typical action cameras
Fewer features than dedicated action cams
Waterproof to the depth of 15m
4X optical zoom f/2 lens
Five underwater shooting modes
4K & HD video
12MP BSI CMOS sensor, up to ISO 12800
TruePic VIII image processor
The Olympus Tough TG-6 is a hybrid option for those who want a point-and-shoot that can handle rough environments.
This compact camera is protected against water, dust, and scratches. It truly shines in underwater photography and video capture, sporting five different shooting modes that function in low-light conditions.
ZDNET ranks the GoPro HERO11 Black as the best action camera currently on the market, due to its versatility. You can use this action camera to capture live events, sports, vlogs, and more. Plus, if you sign up for the subscription, it makes on-the-go uploads and editing a breeze.
If you're interested in premium features, you may want to opt for a camera with a subscription option. These services often provide cloud uploads, advanced editing, storage, and more. However, we've also selected action cameras suitable for entry-level photographers and enthusiasts, who may not need advanced features to enjoy a new action camera.
Best action camera
Premium or entry-level friendly?
GoPro HERO11 Black
Osmo Action 3

Olympus Tough TG-6
The best action camera for you depends on how you want to use it. If you plan to focus on slow-motion videos and stills, for example, Olympus may be the best fit for you. If you plan to record underwater swimming, consider the Osmo Action 3 -- it may be your best bet. If you enjoy extreme sports, a GoPro is usually the way to go.
Choose this camera action…
GoPro HERO11 Black
Are a professional user
Want a sleek, multi-function action camera
Osmo Action 3
Are a beginner and want an entry-level camera
GoPro HERO10 Black
Want a slightly cheaper entry into GoPro cameras
Olympus Tough TG-6
Want a point-and-shoot with action features
Brands including GoPro and DJI have established their reputations over many years, but newer entrants like Insta360 have also captured the interest of consumers. When selecting our top picks, ZDNET focused on user experience, price point, video capture quality, and durability as important factors to keep in mind.
Today, we are surrounded by a massive variety of cameras. Our smartphone cameras Strengthen every year, while DSLRs are becoming smaller and more portable. Plus, mirrorless cameras are taking the market by storm.
However, if video capture in fast-moving situations is what you are most interested in, your mobile device or mirrorless will only go so far. Action cameras are built for just that: high-speed, gritty footage of action in motion -- and this is rarely a priority for other types of camera.
While GoPro still dominates the market, vendors including Insta360 and DJI can design and deliver excellent action cameras.
Each rival has its own take on what an action camera should look like. They prioritize different features like video capture, underwater use, and editing. It's up to you to decide what appeals the most.
4K, also known as Ultra High Definition (UHD), is a step beyond 1080p (HD) video. You'll find 1080p in many older digital cameras and DSLRs.
4K resolution packs far more information into footage, which increases content quality, sharpness, and color accuracy.
The best action cameras today offer 4K recording, although some cheaper and more budget-friendly entry models will only be able to record in 1080p.
With so many vendors now developing cameras designed for extreme sports and activities, there are more options than ever before. We can't showcase every worthy camera available, but the alternative options below are also worth considering for your next adventure.

SEOUL, South Korea, Sept. 1, 2022
SEOUL, South Korea, Sept. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The W-Foundation (Wook Lee, Chairman of the W-Foundation), official partner of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), successfully held the 1st Conference of Global Climate Action Fund at the Shilla Hotel in Seoul, Korea from August 22 to 24, ahead of the upcoming COP 27, which is being held in Egypt November of this year.
The Conference's view is that despite concerted global efforts by institutions and governments to promote innovations that can help address and mitigate climate change, many promising technologies and ideas remain stalled in development due to barriers in finance, policy and management resources.
The mission of the global alliance for Global Climate Action Fund (GCAF) is to identify and support promising climate action technologies and ideas globally. By bringing to the table a close-knit community of cross-disciplinary practitioners and experts in finance, policy and management, the Conference is well positioned to help promising climate technology projects overcome these barriers in a spirit of radical collaboration.
Over 6 widely attended sessions covering ESG, Finance, Action, Technology, Innovation and Transportation, this year's inaugural conference highlighted the global private sector's leadership and participation in high-impact initiatives for Net-Zero. The Conference of Global Climate Action Fund will be an annual event. While the inaugural conference was held in Korea, where the W-Foundation is headquartered, the venue for next year's event will be decided in Egypt at COP 27.
Along with the UNFCCC and representatives of governments and institutions, global leaders from leading companies around the world such as S&P Global, YIDO, GroupM, Loreal, Deutsche Bank, Schneider Electric, Schlumberger, Borealis Group, SBS, Techstars, CGI, Globe Telecom, Oriental Brewery (AB InBev Family) participated in the Conference. These companies and organizations agreed to join in alliance with the Global Climate Action Fund over coming years to identify and support innovative climate technologies and ideas.
The W-Foundation Chairman Wook Lee highlighted that, "It was a privilege to bring together the leaders and experts of global companies that are leading the private sector's efforts to address and mitigate climate change. We look forward to working closely with these alliance partners to identify and help promising technologies and ideas overcome barriers and find ways to achieve scale and relevance in the market. We believe this will be critical to our path to getting to Net-Zero."
W-Foundation (Official partner of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) is a non-profit organization founded in 2012. W-Foundation is committed to leading and enabling a broad-based public support for nature conservation, climate change mitigation and immediate relief for refugees impacted by climate change and natural disasters. W-Foundation partners with like-minded individuals, corporations and organizations around the world to build and sustain a broad-based movement to making a difference for our shared future.

DJI Osmo Action 3
“The DJI Osmo Action 3 is a great action camera that distinguishes itself with a unique magnetic clip system and an exceptionally rugged design.”
Excellent image quality and video stabilization
Very rugged and waterproof design
Unique magnetic clip system is highly versatile
Not as compact and lightweight as the Action 2
Magnetic locking system prone to clogging in sandy conditions
When I reviewed the DJI Action 2 last year, I applauded its innovative design, which differentiated it from all the other action cameras on the market. The DJI Osmo Action 3 does a 180-degree turn back to basics with a more traditional design and the resuscitation of the Osmo name. While this move initially puzzled me, now that I’ve had time to test the Action 3, I’ve come to appreciate why DJI made the change. This tough, new camera is built to survive anything you can throw at it, but does it do enough to differentiate itself from the competition?
DJI Osmo Action 3 design
DJI Osmo Action 3 Hiking Adventure!
The Action 3 appears remarkably similar to the original DJI Action camera, which was a great camera but was perhaps a little too similar to GoPro. The Action 3 may still carry that typical action camera appearance, but it is unique in some key ways. Primary among them is the magnetic quick release system, which it has inherited from the Action 2, and which has been significantly upgraded to be more solid and reliable.
This magnetic clip system allows you to attach and detach the camera from various mounts, or even just stick the camera to a metal surface. While such a system may seem concerning in terms of its stability, I can vouch for the reliability of the magnetic clip, as it stayed locked and secure on an extension rod out a car window while traveling at 40 mph, and I’ve flown the Action 2 on top of a drone at even greater speeds than that. The one thing to keep in mind is that the magnetic clip sometimes doesn’t snap together perfectly the first time, so it’s a good idea to double-check that connection.
The Action 3 is unique in that its front screen is now touch-sensitive, which enables you to adjust settings while the camera is facing you, such as when shooting vlog-style videos. Since I frequently shoot vlog-style YouTube videos myself, I very much appreciate this feature. I’m also a fan of the battery door on the Action 2, which is easy to operate while remaining secure and waterproof.
DJI Action 3 image quality
If you liked the look of footage captured with the Action 2, you’ll also appreciate the Osmo Action 3. To my eye, the difference is practically nonexistent. That’s not a bad thing, though, as the Action 2 captures great-looking video. Details are crisp and clear, and both Rocksteady and Horizonsteady image stabilization are highly effective. The standard color mode is perhaps a little oversaturated, but I personally like the look of it, and the D-cinelike color profile is available if you prefer to have more editing latitude and craft your own look in post-processing.
The Action 3 can shoot in 4k at up to 120fps, and at up to 240fps in 1080p. Shooting at 1080p 240fps is as mushy and ugly as you would expect, but 4k 120fps looks pretty good. It’s limited to 4k resolution, which is fine if you just want to publish straight-out camera footage without much editing. But it doesn’t measure up to the GoPro Hero 11 Black’s 5.3k maximum resolution and larger sensor, which offers extra versatility in post-processing.
DJI Osmo Action 3 vs GoPro Hero 11 Black - Video Quality Comparison
I found that the Action 3 outperforms the Hero 11 slightly in terms of video stabilization, while the Hero 11 is marginally sharper. The end result is that in terms of pure video quality, the two cameras are very evenly matched.
One thing I do really like about the video produced by the Action 3 is that it matches up really well with other DJI products. This means that if you fly a Mini 3 Pro, for example, to capture aerial footage, it will pair nicely with the look of footage captured with the Action 3.
If you fly a DJI Mini 3 Pro to capture aerial footage, it will pair nicely with the look of footage captured with the Action 3.
The Action 3 puts extra emphasis on color accuracy, with a large, dedicated sensor for detecting the correct white balance for any given scene. While this didn’t appear to make a huge difference in the rather tame conditions I filmed in with the camera, it would likely be more useful for deep sea diving.
DJI Action 3 display
Both the front and rear displays of the Action 3 are bright with good color. The larger rear touchscreen is certainly much easier to use than the smaller screen of the Action 2, and the built-in front screen means you don’t have to get a separate module to have a front-facing display.
DJI Action 3 durability and waterproofing
The Osmo Action 3 is remarkable in the extent to which it can be dropped and submerged. It’s drop resistant up to five feet and is waterproof all the way down to 52 feet underwater. Furthermore, it’s rated for use between negative four and 113 degrees Fahrenheit. Those are some truly impressive numbers, and they are reflected in the particularly rugged feel of the camera. I really like the rubber ring around the lens, which adds protection to the most vulnerable part of the Action 3, though I would prefer that it lock securely into place, as it can be nudged off the rim of the lens accidentally.
While I didn’t chuck the camera around like a hacky sack, and I sadly lacked the time for deep sea diving lessons, I did take the Action 3 out hiking and dunked it in a lake. This admittedly minor punishment didn’t even faze the Action 3. If you want extra drop protection DJI does sell a housing, which is included with the Adventure combo.
There is one major flaw, however, when it comes to using the camera in the real world, which is that the magnetic plates of its unique mounting system have an unfortunate tendency to grab magnetic particles of sand. It doesn’t hurt the camera, but it can interfere with the locking mechanism and require frequent cleaning if you take it to the beach.
DJI Action 3 battery life
The Action 3 offers similar battery life to competing action cameras, though it is capable of operating at more extreme temperatures. I was able to make it through a typical day of hiking and recording without needing to swap the battery out. Still, if you plan on doing longer shoots rather than brief highlights such as I prefer, you will definitely want to have spares. The camera also charges very fast, taking only 18 minutes to charge a battery up to 80% of the way full.
I tested the Action 3 with the optional Multifunctional battery case, which not only acts as a charger and carrying case for up to three batteries at a time, but you can also charge your smartphone or other USB-C devices from your Action 3 batteries by plugging them into the case. It also has extra space in which to store two extra microSD cards.
DJI Action 3 performance and software
I didn’t experience any issues with overheating or other performance-related problems while shooting with the Action 3. The DJI Mimo companion app is also functional for controlling the camera, as well as downloading and editing footage.
Audio recording is very good, and I’d feel comfortable using the Action 3 to shoot vlog-style videos on its own. If you want even better audio you can plug the DJI Mic into the Action 3 and record via that excellent wireless microphone. When I tried this out it was a simple plug-and-play experience, with the only setup hassle being unclipping the USB-C port door from the Action 3 to make way for the DJI Mic.

DJI Osmo Action 3 price and availability
The Action 3 is available now, starting at a $330 price point. You may also want to consider upgrading to the $440 adventure combo, which includes three batteries, the excellent multifunctional battery case, two extra lens protectors for the Action 3, two adhesive base kits, a protective frame, and an extension rod kit. Though it adds $110 to the base price, the Adventure kit adds a lot of value with really useful accessories at a discount compared to their individual MSRP.
An exceptionally rugged action camera
While I still miss the innovative design of the Action 2, the DJI Osmo Action 3 is a great action camera that stacks up well to fierce competition from the likes of GoPro and Insta360. While, in the end, I don’t find that it pulls ahead of other cameras in this genre overall, it does boast a couple of significant advantages.
If you need an extra tough camera, this is the one to choose, particularly with the optional protective frame installed. And if you plan on going diving, the Action 3 can go all the way down to 52 feet underwater without an extra diving case. The other big selling point is the magnetic quick-release system, which is certainly advantageous if you need to swap mounts quickly. Though, as I found, sandy beaches are this mechanism’s Achilles heel.
The Action 3 will also appeal to DJI drone pilots looking for a rugged camera that will easily match the aesthetic of footage captured using popular drones such as the DJI Mini 3 Pro, Mavic 3, or Avata.

The Meningitis Foundation Aotearoa New Zealand is using World Meningitis Day today to push for urgent funding of vaccines for all 16-year-olds
It has called on the Government to make important vaccine funding decisions without delay
The call comes at a critical time, as the Foundation prepares to make an oral presentation to Parliament’s Health committee later this month.
Pharmac’s Pharmaceutical Therapeutics Advisory Committee will this month begin consultation for its funding options for the most common strains of meningococcal disease – the B and A, C, W, & Y strains.
The Meningitis Foundation Aotearoa New Zealand is using World Meningitis Day today (Wednesday 5 October) to push for urgent funding of vaccines for all 16-year-olds, and has called on the Government to make important vaccine funding decisions without delay.
Call for access to meningococcal vaccines for all young people
The Foundation’s call comes at a critical time for New Zealand, as the Foundation prepares to make an oral presentation to Parliament’s Health committee later in the month. In addition, Pharmac’s Pharmaceutical Therapeutics Advisory Committee will this month begin consultation for its funding options for the most common strains of meningococcal disease – the B and A, C, W, & Y strains.
In March 2022, the Meningitis Foundation presented a petition to Dr Shane Reti, National Spokesperson for Health, signed by 6,357 New Zealanders. The petition urges the Government to fund both meningococcal vaccines for the most common strains of meningococcal disease – the B and A, C, W, & Y strains – for all 16-year-olds before they leave school.
The Foundation is calling on Parliament to make two currently available vaccines, which cover the most common strains of meningococcal disease, free for all young people.
The Meningitis Foundation’s Gerard Rushton says that change is needed urgently.
Māori population at highest risk and being failed
Meningococcal disease affects between 100 and 200 Kiwis a year, with around 10-20% of those dying from the disease – typically within 24 hours of contracting it, says Rushton. But many more patients – up to 30% of those affected – suffer severe permanent impairment and disability including loss of limbs, hearing loss, learning difficulties, cerebral palsy and brain damage, says Rushton, who with his wife Claire lost their 16-year-old daughter Courtenay to the disease in 2014.
“It’s a disease that can progress very rapidly and if not detected and treated in time, doctors may be powerless to save the patient’s life,” says Rushton.
“The disease affects all ages, but 13-to-25-year-olds are particularly vulnerable, while Māori and Pasifika communities are also at high risk of catching the disease and not receiving timely treatment. In fact, Māori and Pasifika are 5 times more likely to contract meningitis than other ethnic groups, which is not good enough. The Government is failing these communities.”
From 1991–2007, a New Zealand-only strain of meningococcal B caused an epidemic, which particularly affected Māori and Pasifika infants and children. Māori were also significantly impacted by meningococcal outbreaks in Northland in 2012 and 2018.
“Meningitis vaccines can be administered safely alongside other vaccinations, including the flu and COVID-19 jabs, with no stand-down period.
“Pharmac has been given a $191 million increase to its budget over the next two years. Some of that funding must be directed towards protecting our children and our young people from this serious and invasive disease,” he says.
To 31 August this year, there have been a total of 47 cases of meningococcal disease (44 confirmed and 3 probable), including one death. Over half (53%) of the cases were in Māori and Pacific children aged under 5 years.
Pharmac changes pneumococcal vaccination
Pharmac has recently announced plans to supply all babies access to a broader pneumococcal vaccine from December, as cases of the potentially deadly disease continue to surge. This access, says Rushton, should never have been removed in the first place, and raises wider questions around vaccine availability, and the importance of consistency in raising public awareness.
“There is a huge issue with changing the goal posts for what’s funded and what isn’t. It means people who are eligible for the vaccine may not be getting it recommended to them by healthcare professionals, and that puts more of our rangatahi at risk of dying – or living with the potentially severe long-term side-effects of this horrific disease each year. In the US state of Texas, the introduction of mandatory vaccination for tertiary students has shown a pattern of reduction in meningitis cases.”
Cost of care for meningitis survivors
Rushton says there are serious health, social and economic consequences associated with meningitis. For survivors, there can be significant consequences, including the need for the right support and aftercare to cope with physical and intellectual disabilities. Meningitis and neonatal sepsis are the world’s leading cause of severe intellectual disability, and meningitis is the leading infectious cause of severe hearing loss.
“For those who do survive, but are badly disabled by it, the cost of care over the rest of their lifetime can be enormous. But all that can be avoided by a simple set of vaccinations.”
One French study published in the Journal of Infection and Public Health in 2015 estimated the lifetime cost of care for a meningitis survivor at between €770k and €2.3 million (NZD 1.3 million to NZD 3.9 million).
“The cost of vaccination is approximately $450 per person, meaning that the lifetime cost of care for a single meningitis survivor could fund the vaccination of about 3,000 kiwi youths. It’s about their future, and it’s about Aotearoa New Zealand’s future,” says Rushton.
