Research about deaf communities' access to health services
"New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) is the only language of many deaf people and the first and preferred language of others. It is also the basis for Deaf culture. The New Zealand Medical Journal recently published an article on the experiences of deaf people with NZSL health services. Following are a series of videos that translate the research in NZSL."
