In July 2010, to mark the official national launch of Crohn’s and Colitis New Zealand (CCNZ) and in a quirky way to raise awareness of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD – an umbrella term for Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis), CCNZ and AbbVie launched Toilet Map for New Zealanders.
For patients with these conditions, finding the nearest available toilet can often be a critical situation.
The map is intended for sufferers of Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis but is a great resource for anybody (travellers, parents with young children).
The Toilet Map website can be accessed via all web browsers and through smartphones that have internet access. These sites were unveiled at the group’s launch on July 29, 2010 and continue to be updated and improved
It is CCNZ’s hope that a Toilet Map desktop and mobile websites will have wide appeal as a useful tool for a variety of New Zealanders, including families looking for changing stations, runners looking for facilities, travellers etc.
