MOH - Draft update of the NZ Health Strategy

The Ministry of Health is consulting on the draft update of the New Zealand Health Strategy.  The draft updated Strategy proposes a clear view of the future we want for the health system over the next 10 years, to ensure all New Zealanders live well, stay well, get well. A Roadmap of Actions proposes a direction of travel for the next 5 years.

The draft updated Strategy covers challenges and opportunities for the health system, the future we want, including principles and behaviour that will enable it, and 5 strategic themes:

  1. people-powered
  2. closer to home
  3. value and high performance
  4. one team
  5. smart systems
