constant and often frustrating lack of exact and accurate information,
an idea appeared about a Web site that would offer as much possible
data and information for people with disabilities, especially
those with paraplegia and tetraplegia. It is not always easy for
disabled person to see his or her doctor, to know the latest law
regulations or to be informed about his or her basic human rights.
Especially such problem is acute in smaller communities out of
major urban centres.
So the intention
is to transform HUPT's Web site not only into a Web-portal, which
would be always accessible Croatian net center for disabled persons,
particularly for paraplegics and tetraplegics, but also to the
site where an individual is free to communicate with doctors and
other experts through E-mail.
of the site is divided into several parts. They include pages
about HUPT, about the Web-portal project, information about spinal
cord injury (paraplegia and tetraplegia), about law regulations
and rights, etc. Other pages, such as net edition of HUPT's bulletin,
are to follow. The URLs are: http://www.hupt.hr (new) or http://hupt.tripod.com
and Research Network - CARNet, supports this project.
