Surgical mesh can and has adversely affected thousands of Australian men and women. Those impacted suffer physically, emotionally, financially and psychologically; family life is never the same again. Individual recovery is unique and sometimes complex, often requiring lifelong care.
Mesh Injured Australia Inc. will provide guidance through practical pathways to navigate the medical maze and empower individuals to make informed choices along their personal journey.
Our toll free 1800 MESHED number is manned by mesh injured volunteers who will help callers to identify possible injury, validate their concerns, and offer support and guidance. Membership to MIA includes community support and registration to an independent national registry.
Mesh Injured Australia Inc. intends to highlight the need for services comparable to those of cancer sufferers and their families, through awareness, advocacy and education.
