Občianske združenie Elektrosmog a zdravie sa pridalo k svetovej podpore japonskej výzvy napísanej zdravotnou sestrou Akiko Kobayashi – zdravotnou sestrou a tiež hypersenzitívnou osobou.
Plánuje predložiť písomné stanovisko japonskej vláde so žiadosťou o úľavu pre pacientov s precitlivenosťou na elektromagnetické žiarenie a tiež chemikálie. Jednou z jej požiadaviek je, aby v každej prefektúre bola zriadená aspoň jedna nemocnica, kde môžu pacienti s precitlivenosťou navštíviť lekára alebo byť hospitalizovaní bez rizika ožiarenia.

Signatures of Petition for Relief of Patients and Disabled Persons with Environmental Diseases
(Matters to be petitioned)
Patients and disabled persons with Environmental Diseases which is a new disease covered by insurance since 2009, are still left behind in society in terms of social security, medical care, nursing care, education, and various other situations. In addition, although they are recognized as disabled persons by the Cabinet Office, it is difficult for them to apply for a physical disability certificate due to inadequacies in the current law. Suicides due to extreme hardship in life continue to occur. We demand comprehensive and concrete relief for the patients and disabled persons with Environmental Diseases based on the proposal “On Relief for Patients and Disabled Persons with Environmental Diseases” (written by Akiko Kobayashi).
- Revision of the national examination standards (for doctors, nurses, care workers, and dentists) on matters related to Environmental Diseases.
- Concrete measures for medical care, nursing, and Long-Term Care, and revision of medical insurance
- Specific measures for children and youth (education and employment)
- Revision of school environment sanitation standards, the General Principles for the Promotion of Children and Youth Development, and the Student Guidance Outline.
- Amendment of the Act on Welfare of Physically Disabled Persons.
- Revision of survey items for Certification of Needed Long-Term Care.
- Establishment of evacuation shelters in the event of disasters: allowing evacuation shelters to be used by persons with Environmental Diseases, and so on.
- Revision of the Public Offices Election Law: Voting place development and implementation of mail-in ballots so that persons with Environmental Diseases can vote, and so on.
- Establishment of safety areas in public places: Establishment of spaces for persons with Environmental Diseases in public spaces and transportation facilities, and so on.
- Provide temporary shelters and residences: Provide shelters for patients, persons with disabilities, and persons with critical condition with Environmental Diseases who need to evacuate temporarily due to construction work in the neighborhood, and so on.
